October 29, 2018 – The Jewish Federation of Cleveland today announced additional information about the logistical plan for tonight’s community vigil for the victims of the anti-Semitic act of violence that took place at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA on October 27, 2018. The vigil will be held at the Mandel Jewish Community Center's Stonehill Auditorium (26001 South Woodland Road) at 5:00 pm.
In anticipation of larger-than-capacity crowds, the Federation has made the following accommodations:
- Parking for the event will only be available at the Fuchs Mizrachi School (26600 Shaker Boulevard), The Temple-Tifereth Israel (26000 Shaker Boulevard), The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage (2929 Richmond Road), Cleveland Clinic-Rehabilitation Hospital (3025 Science Park Drive), Park Synagogue East (27500 Shaker Boulevard) and the Jewish Federation of Cleveland (25701 Science Park Drive). Free shuttle bus service to the event will be provided from all parking locations.
- Curb-side drop-off service is available for elderly guests or those with difficulty walking at the Stonehill Auditorium entrance of the Mandel Jewish Community Center. However, there will be no parking available on site for any guests.
- Seating will be limited at the Stonehill Auditorium. Therefore, additional seating will be provided with a simulcast broadcast of the event at The Temple-Tifereth Israel.
- For those unable to attend the event in person, the vigil will be streamed live on the Federation’s Facebook page.
- The 45-minute program will begin promptly at 5:00 pm. As a reminder, no large bags will be allowed in the auditorium. Likewise, no personal signage will be allowed in the event. All guests must use the Stonehill Auditorium entrance.
We invite the entire Greater Cleveland community to join us for this special vigil for the victims and their families, as well as all who feel the pain of this hate crime in the City of Pittsburgh and around the world.
