On the cover: Destination Cleveland’s script “Cleveland” signs are perfect for selfies, group photos, and in this case, the cover of SOURCE. The first three were installed in 2016 at Edgewater Park, in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood, and as shown here, in downtown Cleveland’s North Coast Harbor district. Since then, the number of signs has doubled and can now be found at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Euclid Beach and along the west bank of The Flats.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Light overpowers darkness

T

his is a difficult time for Jews around the world. Acts of hate aimed at our people are on the rise. Some are merely criminal, others are appallingly heinous, but all have severe and long-lasting consequences. They ripple through our communities, creating a sometimes inescapable sense of insecurity. Such is the vile nature of anti-Semitism. On Shabbat morning, Oct. 27, our neighbors in Pittsburgh suffered the worst act of anti-Semitism carried out on American soil. We continue to grieve for the victims of the massacre at Tree of Life Congregation, and we continue to keep in our prayers their families and the Squirrel Hill community. We will never forget. During times of such tragedy and sorrow, it is important – and can help the healing – to remember the good, celebrate the positive and invite in the light to overpower the darkness. There are so many local organizations and institutions within Jewish Cleveland – and all of Northeast Ohio – that work every day to do just that. You’ll find many of them inside this issue of SOURCE. And also, inside, you’ll find our repurposed profiles of the 2018 class of the Cleveland Jewish News 18 Difference Makers. When we introduced the 18 Difference Makers four years ago, we intended for it to be a way to acknowledge acts of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah (charity) happening in our community. It’s done just that, and this year, we’re especially grateful we can celebrate those acts of kindness. On Nov. 18, more than 400 from our community gathered at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights for an evening filled with nothing but that positive, celebratory light to honor some of our community’s brightest and most inspiring leaders. It is these unselfish, generous and caring acts of leadership taking place here in Northeast Ohio that serve as a celebration for all Jews – and non-Jews – working to strengthen and better our community. When you read, maybe for the second time, the 18 Difference Makers’ stories – and those of Roe Green, Judge Dan Aaron Polster and the Stein family, all recipients of our

annual awards – you will undoubtedly be as inspired as we were when we selected them to represent all that is good within us. These individuals positively impact our community – as have those in past classes of 18 Difference Makers. This year, however, in the wake of such sadness, it felt especially rewarding to celebrate their accomplishments and be reminded of the good and vital work people do to make a difference.

2019 HOLIDAYS

JEWISH HOLIDAYS and noteworthy dates TU B’SHEVAT

Sunday, Jan. 20 (begins at sunset) Monday, Jan. 21 (ends at nightfall) Tu b’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar, is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. We mark the day of Tu b’Shevat by eating fruit, particularly the kinds singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. On this day, we remember that “man is a tree of the field” (Deuteronomy 20:19) and reflect on the lessons we can derive from our botanical analogue.

PURIM

Wednesday, March 20 (begins at sunset) Thursday, March 21 (ends at nightfall) The jolly festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).

PASSOVER

Friday, April 19 (begins at sunset) Saturday, April 27 (ends at nightfall) The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. By following the rituals of Passover, we have the ability to relive and experience the true freedom that our ancestors gained.

YOM HASHOAH

YOM HAZIKARON

Wednesday, May 1 (begins at sunset) Thursday, May 2 (ends at nightfall) Holocaust Remembrance Day

Tuesday, May 7 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, May 8 (ends at nightfall) Israeli Memorial Day

YOM HA’ATZMAUT

Wednesday, May 8 (begins at sunset) Thursday, May 9 (ends at nightfall) Israeli Independence Day

SHAVUOT

Saturday, June 8 (begins at sunset) Monday, June 10 (ends at nightfall) Shavuot coincides with the date that God gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. It comes after 49 days of eager counting, as we prepared ourselves for this special day. It is celebrated by lighting candles, staying up all night to learn Torah, hearing the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogue, feasting on dairy foods and more.

2019 HOLIDAYS TISHA B’AV

Saturday, Aug. 10 (begins at sunset) Sunday, Aug. 11 (ends at nightfall) The Three Weeks is an annual mourning period that falls in the summer during which we do not cut our hair, purchase new clothes, listen to music or hold weddings. It reaches its climax and concludes with the fast of the ninth of Av, the date when both Holy Temples were set aflame. This is the saddest day of the Jewish calendar, and it is also the date that many other tragedies befell our people. The fast of Tisha b’Av begins at sunset the previous evening. Besides fasting, we abstain from additional pleasures: washing, applying lotions or creams, wearing leather shoes and marital relations. Until midday, we sit on the floor or on low stools.

ROSH HASHANAH

Sunday, Sept. 29 (begins at sunset) Tuesday, Oct. 1 (ends at nightfall) Rosh Hashanah is the birthday of the universe, the day G-d created Adam and Eve, and it’s celebrated as the head of the Jewish year. It’s celebrated with candle lighting in the evenings, festive meals with sweet delicacies during the night and day, prayer services that include the sounding of the ram’s horn (shofar) on both mornings and desisting from creative work.

YOM KIPPUR

Tuesday, Oct. 8 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, Oct. 9 (ends at nightfall) Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year – the day on which we are closest to God and to the quintessence of our own souls. It is the Day of Atonement – “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before God” (Leviticus 16:30). For nearly 26 hours – from several minutes before sunset on 9 Tishrei to after nightfall on 10 Tishrei – we “afflict our souls,” or abstain from food and drink, do not wash or anoint our bodies, do not wear leather footwear and abstain from marital relations.

SUKKOT

Sunday, Oct. 13 (begins at sunset) Sunday, Oct. 20 (ends at nightfall) For 40 years, as our ancestors traversed the Sinai Desert, following the Exodus from Egypt, miraculous “clouds of glory” surrounded and hovered over them, shielding them from the dangers and discomforts of the desert. Ever since, we remember God’s kindness and reaffirm our trust in His providence by dwelling in a sukkah – a hut of temporary construction with a roof covering of branches – for the duration of the Sukkot festival (on the Jewish calendar Tishrei 15-21). For seven days and nights, we eat all our meals in the sukkah and otherwise regard it as our home.

SIMCHAT TORAH

Monday, Oct. 21 (begins at sunset) Tuesday, Oct. 22 (ends at nightfall) The holiday of Sukkot is followed by an independent holiday called Shemini Atzeret. In Israel, this is a one-day holiday; in the Diaspora, it is a two-day holiday, and the second day is known as Simchat Torah. This holiday is characterized by utterly unbridled joy, which surpasses even the joy of Sukkot. The joy reaches its climax on Simchat Torah, when we celebrate the conclusion – and restart – of the annual Torah-reading cycle.

CHANUKAH

Sunday, Dec. 22 (begins at sunset) Monday, Dec. 30 (ends at nightfall) Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah lighting. The menorah holds nine flames, one of which is the shamash (“attendant”), which is used to kindle the other eight lights. On the first night, we light just one flame. On the second night, an additional flame is lit. By the eighth night of Chanukah, all eight lights are kindled. Special blessings are recited, often to a traditional melody, before the menorah is lit, and traditional songs are sung afterward.

Your Menorah Park

Our Story More than a century ago, a small group of community members saw the need for 24-hour care for its frailest aging adults. We continue their legacy and share their passion in the award-winning health care and residential organization that is the expanded Menorah Park of today. Menorah Park’s nonprofit mission is to provide caring residential options and quality health care services in a culture of innovation and excellence, guided by Jewish values and a commitment to help all adults to age empowered, inspired and fulfilled. At Menorah Park, age is defined as personal, not chronological. We recognize that every individual’s path to successful aging is unique, and we offer many choices in services, programs and opportunities that help them continue their own positive stories. Jane After living at Menorah Park’s independent residence R.H. Myers for a short while, Jane is finding humor — and fame — by writing and singing about the realities of the often less-thanattractive aspects of the aging process. Jane says that aging is about attitude. Keeping the “funny bone” in shape is as important as keeping the back straight. Jane continues to enjoy having lunch with friends, swimming and taking advantage of occupational therapy, yoga and exercise classes. These lifestyle choices keep Jane going strong through many of life’s setbacks. Neil and Bonnie Married more than 50 years, Neil and Bonnie find comfort in having Menorah Park’s Mandel Adult Day Center to help Bonnie keep her zest for life and independence even as she experiences memory loss. Bonnie continues to enjoy dance, theater, movies and the arts during her regular visits to the Center, where she is independent and empowered in a safe environment while Neil is at work. Memory loss can be scary and depressing, but the Center helps Bonnie and Neil continue their story of love and inspiration. Judi For many people, living pain-free is hard to imagine. Judi wanted to go to her grandson’s college graduation and was determined to do so without the aid of a wheelchair. After multiple knee surgeries and a leg surgery for a broken femur, she was still on the mend when she developed neck and back pain. Dry needling, one of the latest techniques for pain management offered by a certified specialist at Menorah Park’s Peter B. Lewis Aquatic & Therapy Center, made it possible for Judi to reach her goal. She sat comfortably for hours waiting for the moment, and then it came. She proudly watched him receive his diploma, and smiled with realization that she felt terrific and had no pain whatsoever. Elaine Elaine was concerned that the physical frailty that kept her from writing her name would impact her ability to make a difference. When she joined Menorah Park’s senior advocacy efforts, her signature on a letter about funding was a lipstick kiss that brought even more attention to the policy issue. Elaine often says her body may be limited, but she’s still a vibrant person and will not be defined by her challenges. Ryan Ryan finds hope since his partial paralysis through the strong bond of caring found with his Menorah Park home care nurse. Over

time, Ryan has miraculously regained slight sensations of touch, and sees that as a sign that he can – and will – walk again. These are just a few of the dozens of inspiring stories that take place every day when people engage with Menorah Park, thanks in large part to the support of donors who share in the passion to make lives better. It is in these experiences and more that Menorah Park’s values, five-star services and award-winning programs offer something for everyone. Menorah Park is more than a top choice in Northeast Ohio — and in the nation — for health and wellness services and residential living. It’s a resource offering sound solutions to improve lives, no matter the circumstances or challenges, with a focus on each individual’s preferences, values, motivations and even the fulfillment of dreams they thought would never come true. The Menorah Park of today will be different tomorrow, because it continues to evolve with new information, technologies and treatments, all in the service of helping individuals fulfill their goals and continue their personal stories of successful aging, however they define it.

Creating Well Being by Laura Mineff, Designer/Contractor Array Design Studio

O

ver the last 10 years, the way we live and entertain in our homes has changed dramatically. The kitchen was hidden away in a separate room not to be seen by the guests. Formal dining rooms were only used for special occasions. Houses had structured layouts with no open flow. The style today is open and airy, creating an opportunity for guests to be involved in the dining, cooking or gathering experience. This new setting offers engaged conversation while sitting at a beautiful island right in the middle of the kitchen. The same beautiful concrete or stainless steel island also doubles as a kitchen table for the family with plenty of storage underneath. The island will have additional functionality to include the easy option of a second sink, dishwasher or cook range in the kitchen to free up space for better flow when there are several people cooking. Many people who enjoy watching the TV programs on design and renovation have been influenced to think that they need a demolition crew to make changes that will give their space a wonderful, updated look. It really doesn’t take a village to make changes that will be more conducive to your lifestyle and any challenges you may be having in reaching and bending to use the microwave or load the dishwasher. My design team takes into account modifications to keep you in your home, to enhance your life experience and to bring happiness to your environment. New concepts may mean changes as lowering the microwave for easier reach. (It doesn’t have to be positioned above your head.) Dishwashers can be raised for less bending. Upper closed cabinets are replaced with open design cabinets that are easy to see and to reach. Wish you could easily have your morning coffee or latte in your master suite without leaving your room? If that makes you happy, why not have an attractive alcove that is beautifully integrated into your bedroom living area with a small inconspicuous refrigerator

to store cream and butter and an automatic barista machine that you fill with water the night before? While you are adding the touches you always imagined, consider installing a heated towel bar in your en suite bathroom that has a luxurious power hand-held shower with several mounted jets to reach all those key body spots and temperature control internally so no scalding. Your newly designed etched-glass shower stall could have a corner bench where you can easily sit. The sleek grab bar provides safety and a nice design element to help you get up and down while you enjoy the steam/sauna element that is so wonderful for your skin and psyche. And for those who think that the expense of modifying your kitchen or bedroom is just a fanciful whim that won’t be valuable, think again. You never lose by updating your home because the changes will bring you enjoyment and the ability to remain in your home. When it’s time to sell, the updates will be perfect marketing features for maximum market value. If you have been thinking about making changes to your home environment so that it is more joyful for you and maybe adding the little fridge in your bedroom for a late-night snack or for that early morning caffeine fix, don’t delay your happiness.

Hospice of the Western Reserve: 40 Years of Caring for Our Community

S

erious illness touches everyone at some point in life. As a loved one’s condition progresses, families can feel overwhelmed trying to manage all the activities of daily living. As one of the nation’s oldest and most experienced nonprofit providers, Hospice of the Western Reserve is eminently qualified to provide the expert care patients and their families need. For 40 years, the agency has provided palliative and end-of-life care, caregiver support, and bereavement services to over 120,000 Northern Ohio families. The organization is also accredited by the National Institute for Jewish Hospice. Care is provided by a collaborative hospice team including a doctor, nurse, social worker, spiritual care coordinator, nursing assistant and volunteers.The focus is aimed at promoting comfort and quality of life and helping those who are living with an advanced illness make the most of their time. Services include: • Specialized and complex end-of-life care for any terminal illness, including cancer, COPD, heart failure, memory impairment illnesses, Parkinson’s, ALS and kidney disease • Trained volunteers to read, visit, or engage in art, music and legacy projects or lighten the load by providing assistance with household errands • Dedicated on-call teams to respond promptly to unexpected needs after hours, weekends and on holidays • Home delivery of hospice-related medications, medical equipment and supplies • Our Moments to Remember program, which enhances quality of life by fulfilling unique patient wishes • Specialized care for veterans through our Peaceful & Proud program • Respite care to provide family caregivers with a break to take a pause from caring for their loved one

We’ll come to you. Hospice care can be provided in your own home. • Palliative care through Western Reserve Navigator for those who who may not be eligible for the hospice benefit, but need help managing the acute symptoms and pain of an advanced illness Most hospice patients receive care in their own homes, apartments, senior living communities or in hospitals. We also own and operate three freestanding hospice inpatient units (hospice houses) with warm, homelike environments when intensive symptom management is neeeded. Frequently, patients are able to return to their own homes following a brief stay at one of the inpatient units. Hospice of the Western Reserve can change how a person approaches the rest of his or her life, providing comfort, dignity and quality time. Most families share that they wished they had called us sooner. Remember to ask for us by name. For more information, call 216.383.2222, or visit hospicewr.org. David Simpson Hospice House

An ‘Indy Minyan’ Thrives in Leafy Cleveland Heights

L

OOKING FOR A SHUL IN CLEVELAND? BUT NOT A BIG-BOX? Then you might want to check out Beth El-The Heights Synagogue, Cleveland’s independent (indy) minyan. OK, so what’s an independent minyan? Popular on the east and west coasts, independent minyanim are small congregations that have chosen not to affiliate with the major branches of American Judaism. They are typically traditional, lay-led, and egalitarian, with women and men treated equally in most if not all ways. Often they have no building of their own; and often they don’t have a rabbi in charge. But often too, they have multiple rabbis as members. In Cleveland, that would be BE-THS (Beth El-The Heights Synagogue). Founded in 1998, the group drew its first breaths in the old Mayfield JCC, and made its own decisions about everything. They had no rabbi, but were committed to a full traditional service with egalitarian priciples at their core. From the first day, they have done a full Torah reading — something no non-orthodox shul had done in Cleveland for 30 years. And from the first, they have offered free High Holyday tickets and a set-your-own-dues membership format. Twenty years later, they are still going strong in their own way. BE-THS has hired two part-time rabbis: Moshe Adler, who served with distinction from 1999 to his RABBI MICHAEL UNGAR retirement in 2016; and Rabbi Michael Ungar, started in August who started in August 2018. In 2003 they bought a building in the “old neighborhood” of Cleveland Heights that was left behind as its former owners moved east. The congregation has held steady at about 70 member units (families or singles). Currently, BE-THS has four rabbis as members and teachers. Typical shabbat morning attendance is about 40, with a few more for lunch. “We take responsibility for our own Judaism,” says Robin Dubin, co-president of BE-THS. “We’ve really liked having Rabbi Adler and Rabbi Ungar, but we have never been a rabbi-centric congregation. It’s a lot of work making a service happen every week, but we do it ourselves with joy.” Members lead all services, and do all the Torah readings and half RABBI MOSHE ADLER of the divrei torah (the other half is now done now emeritus by Rabbi Ungar). “We’re blessed with a lot of talent,” says Dubin. “There are about 10 regular torah readers, and a dozen service leaders who take turns doing the major services. We made a decision years ago that ‘best voice’ wasn’t the only criterion for leading a service. So you’ll hear a lot of different melodies, some voices that are stellar, some that aren’t. But that’s the ‘participatory’ part of who we are.” And you’ll also hear a lot of singing, starting with a half-hour of Pseukay d’Zimra. BE-THS holds services every Shabbat and holiday morning at 9:15, in their home at 3246 Desota Ave. in Cleveland Heights. They use Rabbi Adler’s Siddur Hallel v’Zimrah, which they created themselves, designed for accessibility. Everything is translated line-for-line, and there’s a lot of transliteration (“everything that we ever sing,” says Dubin). And also: • A light and healthy kiddush lunch every Shabbat • A member-led Torah discussion group, every other week during

Purim at Mitchell’s Ice Cream factory! Full megillah reading, hamentaschen and ice cream too. Shown here: The Shuck family; Amit leads BE-THS children’s programming. the Torah service. • Weekly Shabbat Play Date and regular programming for small children. • A member-led Mishna Study Group. • A monthly Kabbalat Shabbat service and oneg, featuring a multi-course vegetarian/vegan/fish dinner, and teaching. • Monthly Lunch & Learn programs on Shabbat afternoon. • An annual Musicale featuring performances by members. • An annual Scholar-in-Residence weekend. BE-THS does not offer a Hebrew School; they are just too small. Members with children use either day schools or public schools or home schooling, with Jewish learning at home. They do offer bar/ bat mitzvah training, and in-house catering to keep costs down. “Our families have always realized that kids don’t grow up Jewish by being dropped off for Hebrew School,” says Dubin. “While it may take a village to raise a child, it takes a committed family to build a Jewish home. We work hard at fostering that.” BE-THS is LGBTQ friendly, and includes many Jews-by-Choice as members. In their own activities, they deliberately choose to not segregate by age or marital status. “Our policy is that all activities should be open to everyone,” says co-president Bud Stern. No men’s club or sisterhood or couples club or young professionals. The result? Janice Carrick, a former member (now in Alaska) describes BE-THS as “by far the most welcoming place I’ve ever been for a single woman. People treat you as who you are, and don’t worry about whether you’re in a couple.” And finally, if you’re thinking about a move to Cleveland, BE-THS offers its Cleveland Heights location as a major advantage. Cleveland Heights is a leafy inner ring suburb, with tree-lined streets and well built homes (mostly 1900-1950), next to University Circle. No McMansions, but plenty of larger homes too. The housing prices make people from the coasts gasp with disbelief. You can buy a house in walking distance of the shul for under $100,000. BE-THS can be reached at 216-320-9667.

You probably wouldn’t like our shul.

You probably wouldn’t like our shul.

REASON #10:

REASON #5780:

Our kiddushes go on way too long.

You don’t have to pay to pray.

Some shuls whisk you in and out — cup of Mogen David, a pastry, and it’s time to move on to Saturday afternoon. Not us. We have to admit, we like to hang out. We have a light healthy lunch every week. People dawdle as long as they wish — it’s Shabbat, after all! Some just schmooze. Some weeks there’s a singing table; some weeks a Lunch & Learn; usually there’s one or more benching tables. And always, lots of good conversation.

We know, it’s “customary” to charge for High Holy Day tickets. And sometimes “custom” becomes law. But we don’t do it that way. It’s not as if we don’t need the money. It’s just one of our founding principles. We conduct traditional services with full participation for women and men. When we set out to build our home for worship, learning, and community we decided to welcome all Jews, regardless of their financial circumstances. We welcome you and hope you will make it your home, too.

REASON #1:

REASON #6:

We’re in the “old neighborhood.”

We dress funny.

We’re in Cleveland Heights. The place some people gave up on years ago. You remember — tree-lined streets, front porches, sidewalks, diversity, walkable neighborhoods, many restaurants and arts venues, close to University Circle. We love it. We send our kids to public schools, to Jewish day schools, or both. Some of us walk to shul; some drive from as far away as Geauga County or Solon. On foot or on wheels, we’d love to have you join us. If you think you might like this kind of place, give us a call. Beth El–The Heights Synagogue. 216-320-9667.

Some of us wear suits and ties. Some of us show up casual. Some of us come with bicycle helmets. Some women wear a tallit. Some wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a tallit. Some wear their best, but one thing we aren’t is a fashion show. There’s no dress code. We’d rather have you “come as you are” than stay home. If you think you might like this kind of place, give us a call. Beth El–The Heights Synagogue. 216-320-9667.

Welcome to Beachwood Commons – Leading the Way in Assisted Living

B

eachwood Commons Assisted Living, a privately owned company of LifeServices, is one of nine premier assisted living communities located throughout western Pennsylvania and the Greater Cleveland area. LifeServices was founded in 1995 by co-owners Mr. Scott D. Allen and Mr. Timothy W. Coughlin, who worked together to develop and construct each assisted living community. Today, they lead and manage all of LifeServices’ Communities on a day-to-day basis from their central office in Erie, Pa. “Our philosophy of service and care is embodied in the four simple words our residents have taught us are important, quality-of-life values to them: Independence, Privacy, Dignity and Choice,” said Mr. Coughlin. “Our residents have helped us understand that these four values are the foundation of their desire to not only remain in their own homes for as long as possible, but also signify what they seek from us when it’s time to join one of our Communities. Every member of each Care Team shares the passion of those four words in all the ways they assist our residents.” “The goal in all of our LifeServices Communities is not to ‘take care of old people,’ but rather to ‘help older people take care of themselves,’” said Mr. Coughlin. Beachwood Commons is ideally located in a quiet, Cleveland suburb close to where many seniors have always called home. This exceptional location provides easy access to shopping, restaurants and physicians’ offices. The Community features a selection of 76 private and spacious one-bedroom and deluxe studio apartment homes that promote each resident’s independence and privacy while also allowing them to age in place in their own homelike surroundings. Each apartment home features oversized windows for an abundance of natural light, a fully appointed kitchenette with custom wood cabinetry, a private bathroom

with walk-in shower and a state-of-the art personalized emergency response system. Chef-prepared meals offer appetizing, nutritional options each day in the lovely dining room, and all of the bright and cheery common areas provide easy opportunities for socializing. “Our staff understands that everyone wants to continue to live in their own home for as long as possible,” said Mr. Allen. “But when circumstances change and that decision is no longer safe or practical, we’re proud that families choose Beachwood Commons as their comfortable new home.” Whether residents choose to live independently or require more specialized attention, Beachwood Commons offers all the care that’s needed – but only the care that’s needed. An innovative new pricing alternative, FlexCare™, which is based on the specific amount of caregiving time each resident needs, means seniors pay only for the specific care they use. “We provide compassionate and dignified care in a warm and inviting apartment home that’s half the price of a semiprivate nursing home bed,” said Mr. Coughlin. “And less than 10 percent of our residents who join our Community ever end up in a nursing home.” Enjoy assisted living at its best – all from a caring, trained staff that feels like family. To learn more or to schedule a personal visit, call 216-295-1700 or visit LifeServicesAssistedLiving.com.


A family decision you can feel good about.

W hen your loved one requires assistance with personal needs and

medications, yet wants an independent lifestyle, they’ll enjoy the caring atmosphere at one of our beautifully appointed Communities. Call today for a personal visit.

Living with mental illness? Don’t go it alone.

O

ne in four people lives with mental illness, less than half get treatment. Treatment primarily consists of medication, and some support for meeting basic needs. People often live in isolation and despair. Magnolia Clubhouse and Clubhouses around the world fill this void in the mental health care system. Originally founded as Hill House in 1961, with support from the National Council of Jewish Women, Magnolia Clubhouse is a leader in the field of psychiatric rehabilitation. At the heart of the Clubhouse philosophy is the belief that work and relationships are rehabilitative and that both mental and physical health are enhanced when isolation is reduced. Here, members and staff work side-by-side to run the Clubhouse. On any given day you will find members cooking the daily lunch, answering phones, editing in the

video lab, working in our resale shop, preparing mailings, or maintaining the grounds. In keeping with its holistic approach, both psychiatric and primary care are offered in the on-site clinic. And a primary focus of the Clubhouse is assisting people in obtaining employment and in achieving their educational goals. Do you know someone who suffers from mental illness? Share our story. We welcome your support so that this amazing community of hope and opportunity can continue to thrive for those who need it most. Do you have employment positions that need to be filled? Call us! And for your home needs, the Magnolia Clubhouse Shop, our upscale resale shop, is run by and for the benefit of our members and program. We are also happy to take donations to the shop as you down size. The shop hours are T-F 10:003:30, and 10-4 the first Saturday of every month. Visit our website for more information. Also visit us on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.

Magnolia Clubhouse, in University Circle, is a center of psychiatric rehabilitation for people living with mental illness. Members and staff work in partnership to operate the Club and support people in employment and education. An onsite clinic offers integrated psychiatric and primary care services. The international Clubhouse model is research based; members have higher rates of employment, a better quality of life, and lower rates of hospitalization, and incarceration. A year at the Clubhouse costs less than a week in the hospital. We also operate an upscale resale shop. Anyone who lives with mental illness is welcome to join. Everyone is invited to visit!

“Magnolia Clubhouse brings together people from all walks of life that all have something in common. I went from needing help to helping others.“ We thank the American Jewish Committee Cleveland, for honoring Magnolia Clubhouse in 2017 with the Isaiah Award. Here is the acceptance speech of Samantha, a member of Magnolia Clubhouse.

2017 Isaiah Award for Human Relations

“My name is Samantha, and I’ve been a Magnolia Clubhouse member since late last summer. In less than a year, Magnolia has changed my life so greatly. I started coming to Magnolia Clubhouse for a few reasons. I had just ended a partial hospitalization program after an actual hospitalization. I realized I wasn’t ready to go back to my old life. I found a place where it was okay to be me. I felt included even though at that time I was so anxious and forgetful it was difficult to talk. Can you believe I am up here speaking today? I have Magnolia to thank for that. Magnolia offers a lot of opportunities. I went from needing help to helping others. I have worked with staff in advocacy, and I have tutored other members in math. Everyone at Magnolia feeds into this atmosphere of acceptance and love. Magnolia Clubhouse brings together people from all walks of life that all have something in common. We fight mental illness and love each other as brothers and sisters.”

Roe Green Lifetime Achievement Award

F

rom an early age, Roe Green loved the stage, but she was never one for the spotlight. She was more comfortable behind the scenes helping others. Today, she is in the spotlight as she helps others, but it’s more through her philanthropic endeavors. She has left her mark across Northeast Ohio, New York, Florida, Colorado and Canada, where thousands of arts students and aficionados have been the beneficiaries. “My background is really in backstage work and the theater end,” said Green, who is receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her contributions to the arts world. The award is sponsored by ERChealth. The list of organizations she has supported in the last few years appears endless. She gave $6.5 million for the Roe Green Center for the School of Theatre and Dance at Kent State University in Kent, the largest donation the school’s college of arts has received. She bestowed the school $2.2 million to support the Roe Green Visiting Director Series and a $175,000 outright gift and a $2 million bequest to endow the series in perpetuity. “Roe’s generosity is driven by her sincere passion for students,” KSU President Beverly J. Warren said. “Her support continues to have a profound impact on our students’ lives and futures by creating purposeful opportunities for students to grow their talents under the tutelage of renowned directors. We are all thankful for Roe’s generous and ongoing support to Kent State and our school of theatre and dance.” Green, who lives in Jupiter, Fla., and has a residence in Lyndhurst, gave $10 million to Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland to support the next phase of renovations at the Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center at The Temple-Tifereth Israel in Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood. The performance space will be named the Roe Green Proscenium Theater. “Roe’s generous commitment will make an enormous difference for our students and faculty in the performing arts and for the people who come to see them,” CWRU President Barbara R. Snyder said. “The state-of-the-art Roe Green Theater will give actors, dancers and other artists a true opportunity to shine and we could not be more grateful to her for this support.” Green established a $10 million endowment to the Jewish Federation of Cleveland in support of its Campaign for Jewish Needs and she is the co-chair of the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection. The Roe Green Gallery in the Federation’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building in Beachwood is named for her. University Hospitals established the Roe Green Center for Travel Medicine in recognition of a $5 million gift. Green was the first person to endow a chair in the arts at the University of Colorado and a visiting artist series. In Florida, she is involved with the Maltz Jupiter Theater in Jupiter, Palm Beach Dramaworks live theater in West Palm Beach and Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno. She’s also involved with Cleveland Play House in Cleveland, Porthouse Theatre in Cuyahoga Falls, Chautauqua Theater Company in New York, Colorado Shakespeare Festival and the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada. Perhaps her biggest enjoyment is engaging students. “I try to give them experiences they wouldn’t have otherwise, by having the (visiting) artist or visiting directors series,” Green said. “I do a lot of it for the kids. I always ask after a show, ‘Did you learn something from this?’ And I get things like, ‘It was awesome. It’s life-changing, life-altering.’ My gosh, you’re 18, how life-changing can it be? I do like to check in with the students because I am doing some of this stuff for them.”

Green, who turned 70 in October, credits her philanthropic nature to her late parents, U.S. District Judge Ben C. Green and Sylvia E. Green, a registered nurse. They were members of Suburban TempleKol Ami in Beachwood. Her mother was Catholic and her father Jewish. They are considered a founding family of the temple, where she was confirmed. Green worked for a few years behind the scenes for The Singing Angels and the Cleveland Opera. When her father “left a little bit of money” when he died in 1983, she stopped working. Green said she always considered herself philanthropic and started to increase her giving after her mother died in 2003, creating the Roe Green Foundation, of which she is CEO. “It seemed like a good thing for me to do,” she said. Her first donations were not in the arts, but to WomenSafe in Chardon for a new shelter. The second was to name the CWRU law library in her father’s memory. He was Western Reserve University School of Law’s first alumnus. Green graduated from Beachwood High School in 1966 and is enshrined on the school’s wall of fame. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in theater from the University of Colorado in Denver in 1970 and earned a master’s degree in theater from Kent State University in 1980. Green found her love for theater when she was in elementary school. “My mother used to tell me when I was in kindergarten I recited (and) memorized ‘The Three Bears,’ and did it for a school program,” she said. “I’ve always had an interest in the arts. In high school, I was more involved in art, painting and sculpture. Then I did some backstage work in high school.” She also credits Roy Berko, her fifth-grade math teacher who directed school plays, for getting her involved. In college, she took a theater class as an elective and the professor asked if someone would take notes during a rehearsal. “For some crazy reason, I raised my hand,” she recalled. “From then on, I was hooked.” What’s next for Green? “I like to keep my halo shining,” she said. “This is my philosophy of life and I’ve always used it: I have five oranges, I keep one, I save one and I give the other three away. And everything I give away, I get back tenfold.” As sponsor of the Lifetime Achievement Award, ERC president Kelly Keefe said it’s “an honor for us to help recognize and celebrate Roe’s incredible philanthropy. Roe’s generosity is unprecedented – the millions she’s contributed to local arts, education and health care institutions has changed and will continue to change countless lives.” – Bob Jacob cjn.org/source

Judge Dan Aaron Polster Civic Leadership Award

J

udge Dan Aaron Polster said from an early age that he learned ordinary people can do extraordinary things if they recognize the opportunity and don’t let it pass them by. Polster, a Shaker Heights resident and a member of Park Synagogue in Cleveland Heights and Pepper Pike and Congregation Shaarey Tikvah in Beachwood, makes time for volunteering in the community, serving on the boards of the Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School and the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University, but he notes that he also has “a pretty important day job” that he balances between volunteering and family commitments. Polster’s “important day job” is being a U.S. Judge for the Northern District of Ohio, a position he has held since 1998. In addition to his busy caseload, Polster is overseeing more than 1,300 federal lawsuits being brought by communities, including the city of Cleveland, against drug companies and pharmacy chains for their roles in perpetuating the opioid epidemic. “I have an awesome responsibility,” said Polster. “I took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. I feel it keenly every day. My goal is when I finally retire from this job – which I hope won’t be for a long, long time – to pass on to my successor a legal system stronger than the one I inherited. If I do that, I think I’ll have done a pretty good job.” He said the consolidated lawsuits are among the most challenging “constellation of cases” he’s had in his 20 years as a judge. “Typically, a lawsuit is about something unpleasant or unfortunate that happened in the past,” he said. “A plaintiff alleging prior wrongdoing by the defendant. These cases aren’t so much about the past as the present and the future. I think there are very few people in Ohio that don’t have someone impacted by the opioid crisis. There’s so much addiction, suffering and death. “To me, there’s no way not to have that front and center and to urge people – all the parties, public and private – that at the same time they’re fighting over the lawsuit, to see if they can take some steps to turn the trajectory of addition and death down, rather than it going up, up, up. So, I think I tried to approach these cases through the lens of my Jewish training and upbringing, that one should try to alleviate suffering.” To help maintain the balance between his profession and his work in the community, he takes a big-picture view of everything. “I look at my professional and community work together, not compartmentalized,” he said. “One of the reasons that I enjoy the community work is because my job as a federal judge is a very lonely job. I enjoy the opportunity to be out in the community working with people. I also think it’s

118 SOURCE 2019

good to see a federal judge is just an ordinary person with an extraordinary job. We’re ordinary men and women, we just have extraordinary jobs and I think it’s good for people to see that. Sometimes I get inspired from my day job and that helps my volunteering and sometimes it’s the other way around.” He said in addition to being inspired by his parents to give back at an early age, he is also inspired by his wife of 42 years, attorney Deborah Coleman. He is also inspired by other residents of Cleveland and the work they do. “Clevelanders are extraordinarily generous with their time and their money,” Polster said. “My family goes back five generations in Cleveland. I inherited this and want to pass it on better than I got it.” He said the most rewarding aspect of his time giving back to the community are the friendships he’s made with extraordinary men and women he’s worked with. “Plus, the satisfaction of seeing some very worthwhile institutions in our community grow and thrive,” Polster added. He advised young people looking to start giving back to start with something they’re passionate about. “Start with your passion and find an organization in your area that seems to want the kind of help you can give,” he said. “Meet a lot of people, learn what they’re doing, find out about a lot of organizations, learn about something you’re really passionate about. And if you try something that just isn’t a good fit, that’s OK, because then you can try something else.” – Ed Carroll

The Stein family

Carmie and Todd Stein; their children, Abby Diamond, Michelle Hirsch, Jodi Meridieth and Rachel Weinberg; and Geraldine and the late Morton Stein Generation Award

F

or as long as Geraldine Stein can remember, her family has been volunteering – it’s just what they do, she said. “Giving back is one of our family values,” she said. “It’s just a part of who we are. Be kind and generous.” Carmie and Todd Stein; their children, Abby Diamond, Michelle Hirsch, Jodi Meridieth and Rachel Weinberg; and Geraldine and the late Morton Stein are this year’s Generation Award honorees. The family stays active in Jewish life by volunteering in different leadership roles with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, Jewish Federations of North America, the LeBron James Family Foundation, Jewish Family Service Association of Cleveland, Gross Schechter Day School and Montefiore. Todd Stein said he first learned about giving back from his grandfather, Alex Stein, an immigrant from Russia. “When he immigrated from Russia, he opened up a local grocery store,” Todd Stein said. “At the end of the week, he would give away perishable food to families that needed it most. He often let families delay payment on their invoices. He helped so many with the utmost compassion.” Growing up, Hirsch, Diamond, Meridieth and Weinberg remember seeing their parents continuing on that compassion, which has spread through the community through their own involvement and donations. “When we were little girls, our parents used to always tell us when we would fight over toys or clothes, ‘When you share you get more,’” Hirsch said. “They would reward us for being selfless and sharing with each other. Now as adults, we truly understand why helping others is the best feeling in the world. When we give back to the community, we get so much more in return. The more we give, the more we get.” Weinberg added, “We grew up watching our parents and grandparents chairing events, sitting on boards, always being the ones to help make our community stronger. This was just who they were and as a result who we wanted to grow up and be just like.”

The family stays active in the Jewish community in Cleveland and Akron to ensure the experiences they had as children can continue for the next generation. “I’m active in the Jewish community because I want my children to have what we had growing up – a thriving Jewish life and a strong safety net for all,” Diamond said. “As Jews, we are one giant family and we have to take care of each other.” Even after moving away from the area, the youngest generation saw it had an important role in strengthening the community and eventually returned home. “All of us went away to school and then lived in big cities but all of us eventually made our way back to Cleveland,” Meridieth said. “We all came back to raise our Jewish families within five minutes of each other, with our combined eight kids under 6 years old. Family is everything to us. We’re involved because we’re invested in the success of this community.” Morton Stein founded the family’s business, Brunswick Companies, an insurance brokerage and risk management consulting service, in 1972. Todd Stein said he thinks the business has allowed the family to learn to care about others and led to making the community stronger. “We genuinely care about others,” Todd Stein said. “Maybe it’s because we’ve all grown up in the insurance and risk management business, but with everything we do, we want to protect and invest in the many organizations that make our community so strong and will be there in times of need.” For those looking to give more to the community, Carmie Stein said to share why that’s important as it can encourage others to get involved and to make a difference in the community. “Talk about why you give, how to give and why it’s so important to get involved,” she said. “Invite others to join you and see for themselves why it’s so important to make a difference in someone else’s life.” – Alyssa Schmitt cjn.org/source

Noreen Koppelman-Goldstein Age: 77 Residence: Beachwood Spouse: Barry Goloboff Children: Lisa Goldstein, Brian Robbins and Bradley Robbins First job after college: Fifth-grade teacher at Rowland Elementary School in South Euclid What book are you reading now: “Kitchen Confidential” by Anthony Bourdain Favorite hobby: Taking a course to learn about something new What do you do in your spare time? I enjoy picking up my 6-year-old grandson from day care and playing with him and hearing what he is thinking about. One interesting thing most people don’t know about me: When I was 7 years old, I was a donkey on a TV show — a fable from Aesop was told and then we acted it out.

Mandy Kwait Age: 30 Residence: Lyndhurst Spouse: Ben Favorite athlete: Any athlete that makes my husband happy. What book are you reading now: “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” What did you want to be when you grew up: An interior designer or an actress. What do you do in your spare time: I love trying new ethnic foods. My idea of a great night out is going to a restaurant I’ve never tried before and splitting dishes with friends. One interesting thing most people don’t know about me: I count the quality of my life by the relationships that I have with others, but many of my close friend groups have little in common with one another.

Rabbi Enid C. Lader Age: 66 Residence: Lakewood Spouse: Harry Children: Leah and Abby Synagogue: Beth Israel-The West Temple First job after college: Music therapist and educator Favorite athlete: Babe Didrikson Most gratifying job: As a congregational rabbi, I am blessed to be with people in the best and in the most difficult times of their lives. I get to accompany people during the joys and “oys” of life, I get to share the wonder and satisfaction of Torah and lifelong learning, and I get to bring the joy of Judaism to Jews and non-Jews in the larger community. What do you do in your spare time: Spare time? When the weather is nice, I enjoy riding my bicycle around Lakewood and beyond with Harry. We also enjoy our trips to California to visit our daughter, Leah, and her family... And make regular trips to the East Side to visit our daughter, Abby, and her family. I love to visit with friends and family. One interesting thing most people don’t know about me: My background is in music therapy and music education and my major instrument was the viola. I got to play for Bob Hope, and it was quite a thrill to play “Thanks for the Memories” as he came on stage to a cheering audience.

Fern Ruth Levy Age: 70 Residence: Cleveland Heights Synagogue: Beth El-The Heights Synagogue Favorite movie: “Charade” Favorite sports team: Cleveland Indians What book are you reading now: “The Tattooist of Auschwitz” and “The Pity of It All: A Portrait of Jews in Germany” What did you want to be when you grew up: I wanted to be a rabbi, but got told that I can only marry one. Favorite vacation: My trip to Israel, it’s transformation, it’s life changing.

Deena Nyer Mendlowitz Age: 41 Residence: Mayfield Village Children: Rafi Synagogue: Suburban Temple-Kol Ami First job after college: Boone County Council on Aging in Columbia, Mo. Favorite TV show: “Golden Girls” What advice would you give your 14-year-old self: Find community. Create community. Create in general. Don’t wait for permission to create. Speak about your pain and struggles. Speak about what you love and what brings you joy. Things become less scary and more manageable when you talk about them, both for yourself and others who hear your words. Every voice matters, including yours. What did you want to be when you grew up: A comedian, an architect and a mom. What do you do in your spare time: I perform comedy and speak out about mental health, often at the same time. I am passionate about improv and group comedy, an art form when done right, is people saying they care about each other and then having the most fun ever. I live with constant suicidal ideation and talking about it makes myself and others feel less alone. Stigma is a killer.

Debbie Picker Age: 61 Residence: Solon Spouse: Scott Children: Stephanie, Jeremy, Joshua, Erin, Kia and Koby Synagogue: Kol HaLev, Congregation Shaarey Tikvah First job after college: Intervention specialist Favorite movie: “Rainman” Favorite athlete: I admire LBJ (LeBron James) for his philanthropy and integrity. What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a teacher since I was 5. One interesting thing most people don’t know about me: I am not a huge fan of pizza.

Mark Sack Age: 60 Residence: Orange Spouse: Aviv (of blessed memory) Children: Sagi Shilo, Tal Rothstein and Ben Sack Synagogue: Solon Chabad First job after college: Professional basketball player in Israel What book are you reading now: “Option B” by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant Most gratifying job: Teaching high school students because it contains daily opportunities to nurture the critical thinking skills and to encourage pro-social behavior among members of the next generation and to help teens empower themselves and want to develop their potential as students and as positive human beings. Some have described this as “touching the future.” Favorite vacation: Family cruises because while everyone always had age-appropriate activities for themselves (our three children are each 10 years apart), we were always able to find numerous things to do as a family. Also, without the distractions of work and devices, we had plenty of quality time together on the ships and during the land excursions. Have you ever held public office? Does student council president at Taylor Elementary School count?

Donald S. Scherzer Age: 69 Residence: Shaker Heights Spouse: Toni Children: Gabrielle Starr Synagogue: The Temple-Tifereth Israel First job after college: Attorney at U.S. Department of Justice Favorite athlete: Sandy Koufax Most gratifying job: Serving as a trial attorney with the antitrust division of the U.S. Department of Justice prosecuting corporations and individuals who violated the law. Among the businesses I prosecuted, were supermarkets and dairies whose price fixing activities affected the daily lives of all citizens by illegally raising the prices of food staples. What advice would you give your 14-year-old self: Love your family, marry an incredible and loving spouse, raise wonderful children by teaching them good values, work hard but enjoy yourself, be kind, live life by adhering to the Golden Rule, help to improve the lives of others, all while taking time to enjoy life. One interesting thing most people don’t know about me: I drove a taxicab in New York City.

Age: 60 Residence: Beachwood Synagogue: B’nai Jeshurun Congregation First job after college: Data coordinator, CBS news election and survey unit What book are you reading now: “Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor” and “The Soul of America” What advice would you give your 14-year-old self: I look back at that insecure teenager, a little frightened wanting to both fit-in and change the world. I would tell her to believe in herself, trust her instincts, reach for the stars and enjoy the journey. Be true to yourself, be open to different people and ideas, be kind to others, listen more, and take your family and friends on the ride. What did you want to be when you grew up: Olympic figure skater, teacher and U.S. senator One interesting thing most people don’t know about me: I spent many election nights in offices high atop the World Trade Center. We gave up those offices in early September 2001. After the attacks of 9/11, I spent months doing rescue and recovery alongside other volunteers, first-responders, FDNY and NYPD. That experience changed my life. After an almost 25-year career in covering elections full time, I still work with CNN as a member of its election night decision team.

Erica G. Starrfield Age: 41 Residence: Orange Children: Sophie, 11; Asher, 8 Synagogue: Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple First job after college: National nonprofit work in Washington, D.C. Favorite TV Show: “Modern Family” Favorite sports team: Michigan Wolverines or any team my son is playing on. Favorite vacation: Being off the grid with family, camping in the woods or relaxing by the ocean. What do you do in your spare time: Play sports with my son, laugh and craft with my daughter, explore Cleveland, travel and take in all the love of my dog.

Know someone new to Cleveland? A Cleveland Jewish News Subscription is a great housewarming gift! “The first week I moved to Cleveland 15 years ago, a friend of a friend – someone I didn’t even know – stopped by my house on Friday morning. She handed me the Cleveland Jewish News and told me to read it – and get a subscription immediately. She said it would be very important. “What great advice for someone new to town! I’ve been a subscriber ever since, and with both the print and digital editions available, I always feel like I’m in the know. I wouldn’t think of going out on a Friday evening – not to Shabbat dinner, not to services, not anywhere – unless I’ve read the CJN. Otherwise, I’d be totally out of the loop!”

Char Rapoport Nance Director ORT America – Ohio Region
