The Jewish Federation of Cleveland is launching the 2024 Campaign for Jewish Needs on Sunday, September 10 with a Super Sunday Kickoff event for the entire community! The Campaign for Jewish Needs is the Cleveland Jewish community’s annual fundraising campaign that provides the critical dollars necessary to help keep our diverse, local community safe, strong, and welcoming, as well as serve the needs of the global Jewish community.

“The strength of our community comes from the generous support of Jewish Clevelanders, and Super Sunday is a day that demonstrates and celebrates all that makes Cleveland so special,” said Beth Wain Brandon, general Campaign chair. “I look forward to seeing everyone on September 10 as we come together to raise dollars for those who need it most.”

This year, Super Sunday Kickoff attendees will:

  • Join hundreds of community members to raise funds for the Campaign for Jewish Needs
  • Enjoy kosher food, children’s activities, outdoor games, and more
  • Tailgate together for the Cleveland Browns game
  • Volunteer with the Federation’s Jewish Volunteer Network

Super Sunday Kickoff will take place from 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday, September 10 at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building (25701 Science Park Drive in Beachwood). Family activities will begin at 1:30 pm. Attendees can come to the event for a few hours or all day as their schedule allows. Kosher food will be provided.
