We hope to see you at one of our many April events! This month, we're partaking in a global day of volunteering, remembering the Holocaust and heroism with two meaningful events, and commemorating Israel's Memorial Day with song, prayer, and running in the memory of fallen soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

April 16
Good Deeds Day

Spend the day doing mitzvot (good deeds) and helping others throughout Jewish Cleveland and Greater Cleveland communities by selecting one of our volunteer opportunities that will help feed the hungry, comfort the elderly, support populations at-risk, and more.

Times vary based on the volunteer opportunity you choose.

Zikaron BaSalon

Jewish Cleveland young adults are invited to connect with local Holocaust Survivors, as we listen to their stories and engage in moving conversations about the importance of keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive. Zikaron BaSalon, translated literally into “remembrance in the living room” from Hebrew, is an annual event, which commemorates Israeli Holocaust Memorial Day.
