Volunteers Needed for Super Sunday, 9/25
- Share This Story
Be a volunteer at Super Sunday, Jewish Cleveland’s single largest one-day giveathon of the year! The Jewish Federation of Cleveland seeks volunteers to make calls that raise funds for the 2017 Campaign for Jewish Needs. The event takes place on Sunday, September 25 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building (25701 Science Park Drive, Beachwood).
“Super Sunday is amazing,” said Jordan Berkowitz, Super Sunday Co-Chair. “In just one day, hundreds of Jewish Clevelanders come together in support of the Campaign for Jewish Needs. It reminds me how lucky we are to be part of this unified community and it is energizing and inspiring!” Berkowitz co-chairs the event with his wife Rochie of University Heights, Kerry and Daryl Kertesz of University Heights, and Sarah and Scott Zimmerman of Shaker Heights.
This annual, family-friendly event has been a Jewish Cleveland staple for decades. Dollars raised at Super Sunday support the Campaign for Jewish Needs, which is the annual fundraising Campaign that supports our community’s vitality and vibrancy in the year ahead.
The Cleveland Jewish community is comprised of 80,000 people, and the national and international reach of the Federation encompasses tens of thousands more. Through the Campaign for Jewish Needs, people’s lives are changed for the better in Cleveland, Israel, and 70 countries around the globe. 91 cents of each dollar donated goes directly to the community for programs and services.
Community members give for many different reasons, whether it is to feed the hungry, comfort the sick, care for the elderly, educate youth, ensure a Jewish future, speak out for what’s right, bridge cultural divides, or support Israel – whatever inspires you, it’s happening here!
