Helping Habitat for Humanity

It was the perfect day for a “Spruce Up!” Volunteers from our Jewish Volunteer Network and Community Relations Committee, partnered with our friends at Habitat for Humanity and Esperanza to revitalize Cleveland’s Stockyard Neighborhood. Together, we repaired fences, painted, and landscaped to beautify our community that we love. Thanks to all of our dedicated volunteers for joining us to make a big difference!

Watch Now: Holocaust Education Video

Watch Now: Holocaust Education Video

No words can adequately describe the suffering of those who experienced the horrors of the Holocaust firsthand. And, no words can adequately describe the heartache felt by the hundreds of Cleveland community members who join together each year to listen to survivors tell their stories at Yom Hashoah V’Hagvurah, on Holocaust Remembrance Day. We created this video in partnership with Kol Israel Foundation to share the importance of Holocaust education. Today, children survivors are nearing the end of their lives and we won’t be able to hear their stories firsthand forever. Please watch and share as we say “Never Again.”
