115 Difference Makers: A look

back at the inaugural class of CJN Difference Makers

125 Synagogues at a glance 134 Index On the cover:

The Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center at The Temple-Tifereth Israel on the west campus of Case Western Reserve University is a striking reimagining and repurposing of an iconic Cleveland building formerly known as The Temple. A blend of Byzantine and Roman motifs PHOTO | Michael C. Butz capped by a dome faced with custommade gold tile, the building for years was home to the noted Zionist and orator, Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver, and later, his son, Rabbi Daniel Jeremy Silver. Their rabbinates are memorialized in the ornate, seven-sided Silver Hall, the 1,200-seat performance area at the heart of the building. Now, largely thanks to multimillion-dollar gifts from the Maltzes and the Maltz Family Foundation, the singular and beautiful structure has been rejuvenated as home to Case Western’s performance center. The Temple-Tifereth Israel will continue to use the 1924 landmark for life-cycle events and major religious observances. – Carlo Wolff CATEGORY A Cleveland Jewish News Publication

Making a difference

H

ave you ever paid it forward? There are endless ways to do that. We can write a check to our favorite charity, maintain and increase our pledge to the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s annual Campaign for Jewish Needs, tell our local barista we want to pay for the latte of the person behind us, swipe our credit card to cover the grocery bill of the person in front of us. These are all monetary acts of paying it forward. The world always needs such acts of kindness and generosity. What about volunteering your time and providing needed resources to the numerous community organizations within Jewish Cleveland, around Northeast Ohio and more globally, in Israel? Look around you because there are some pretty incredible people within our very own Jewish community who do that and so much more every day. In 2015, the Cleveland Jewish News honored 36 exceptional people who epitomize what it means to pay it forward: the CJN Difference Makers. As I wrote in the Nov. 13 issue of the CJN, they are people of multiple dimensions. They are doctors. They are lawyers. They are students. They are architects. They are activists. They are industrialists. They are teachers, social workers, specialists in special needs. They are developers. They are money managers. They are entrepreneurs. We also honored one individual within our community who has been focused on paying it forward for decades. He literally caters to individuals every day. They are of all ages, from the teen years to the late 80s. No matter their stage in life, they express tikkun olam. Repairing the world is their purpose, and they pay it forward time and time again. That’s Jewish Cleveland. That’s Jewish living in Northeast Ohio.

If you haven’t been reading the CJN or cjn.org lately, you’ve missed their stories, but we’re revisiting them in this issue of SOURCE (Page 115). These stories are so powerful, they’re worth sharing again. In addition, this 2016 issue of SOURCE will again serve as a trusted guide and resource to all that Jewish Cleveland has to offer, from extensive listings for business and community resources to important information regarding Jewish holidays, synagogues and weekly candle lighting times. We’re already well into the Jewish New Year, but as we turn the pages on the Gregorian calendar to 2016, I resolve to find new and meaningful ways to pay it forward within my community, within my Jewish Cleveland. The Difference Makers we again celebrate here are outstanding role models – for me, for you, for all of us.

Find Physician Ratings Online

Adrienne Boissy, MD, MA Chief Experience Officer, Cleveland Clinic

A

s health care evolves, patients have many choices, and are making health care decisions based on comparisons in quality and patient experience. We believe that the best care happens when we create relationships of meaning. It’s when patients trust their doctor or care team and feel their care team is invested in and values who they are as human beings. In today’s environment, we want patients to have the information they need to make informed decisions. That is why Cleveland Clinic is the first major academic medical center to post patient ratings of individual doctors on its website, along with comments from patient surveys. We did this for three reasons: • To embrace transparency in the fullest sense. • To highlight our physicians. Of our more than 1,500 physicians who are rated, the average star rating is 4.8, and 93 percent of patient comments have been positive. • To help manage the survey process. A major flaw with the dozens of other physician rating websites is that none of them confirm that the responses are legitimate. We want to do better for our patients and caregivers.

On the Cleveland Clinic website, physician ratings are posted in the Find a Doctor section. Doctors are rated from one to five stars, and there is a link to patient comments, which are filtered only for obscenity, irrelevance or private health information. The ratings and comments are those of patients who have been randomly invited to take a detailed patient survey after their visit. About 190,000 patients a year accept the invitation. The survey and its results are administered by an independent company to assure objectivity. To arrive at the star ratings, patients are asked to give their doctor a score of one to five based on six factors: Whether the doctor listened carefully to the patient; knew the patient’s medical history; explained things clearly; gave understandable instructions; spent enough time with the patient; and showed the patient respect. These six factors are averaged to generate a one- to five-star rating. The written comments from patients go up on the website whether they are positive, negative or mixed. To assure that there is adequate feedback, Cleveland Clinic will not post a rating until the doctor has accumulated at least 30 survey responses from actual patients. This is a major differentiator from what’s currently out there. In the ever-changing health care environment, the physician-patient relationship remains a critical element to achieving trust, satisfaction and positive outcomes. This initiative is about holding ourselves to a higher standard and getting patients transparent information. Our patients and our caregivers deserve that. To find Cleveland Clinic doctors online, go to clevelandclinic.org/staff. Cleveland Clinic offers same-day appointments.

HOLIDAYS

and noteworthy dates

TU B’SHEVAT

PASSOVER

Sunday, Jan. 24 (begins at sundown) Monday, Jan. 25 (ends at sundown)

Friday, April 22 (begins at sundown) Saturday, April 30 (ends at sundown)

Tu b’Shevat, the New Year of Trees, is a Jewish holiday celebrating trees, plants and produce akin to a Jewish Arbor Day. The Jewish legal tradition, halachah, includes many restrictions and guidelines pertaining to agriculture, and Tu b’Shevat presents an opportunity to raise our consciousness about people’s relationship to the earth.

Passover (Hebrew: Pesach) is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in the Jewish tradition. Through the Passover Seder, a ritual meal, Jews today retell the story of their ancestors’ Exodus from Egypt.

Tu b’Shevat literally means the 15th of Shevat, the date on the Hebrew calendar when the holiday is celebrated. Referred to in the Mishna as the Jewish New Year of Trees, Tu b’Shevat was the day when farmers would offer the first fruits off the trees they planted, after the trees had turned 4 years old. The following year, the produce would be theirs to use for consumption and financial benefit. The Tu b’Shevat seder is borrowed from the Jewish mystical tradition of the middle ages (kabbalah).

PURIM

Wednesday, March 23 (begins at sundown) Thursday, March 24 (ends at sundown) Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the reversal of fortune of the Jews in Persia, believed to be between 539-330 BCE, who went from being sentenced to death to witnessing the death of their sentencer, Haman. Purim is the story of the survival of Jews in a Diaspora community at a moment when they seemed doomed. Some struggle with the end of the Book of Esther, which describes an uprising after Haman was hanged in which tens of thousands of Persians were killed. While God is not explicitly mentioned in the Book of Esther, religious Jews and Rabbinic commentaries interpret the story as an example of the behind-the-scenes role of divine intervention in Jewish survival.

10 Source 2016

The main theme of Passover is redemption, and that the Hebrews with the help of God’s direction of Moses were freed from bondage and went from slavery to freedom.

..................................

YOM HASHOAH Thursday, May 5 Holocaust Memorial Day

YOM HAZIKARON Wednesday, May 11 Israel Memorial Day

YOM HA’ATZMAUT

Thursday, May 12 Israeli Independence Day ......................................

SHAVUOT

Saturday, June 11 (begins at sundown) Monday, June 13 (ends at sundown) Shavuot is the holiday that occurs seven weeks after Passover that celebrates the receiving of the Torah on Mount Sinai during biblical times. The holiday is associated with the grain harvest, and also depicts the covenant to keep the Torah the Jews made with God on Mount Sinai.


TISHA B’AV

SUKKOT

Saturday, Aug. 13 (begins at sundown) Sunday, Aug. 14 (ends at sundown)

Sunday, Oct. 16 (begins at sundown) Sunday, Oct. 23 (ends at sundown)

The Tisha b’Av, also called the Ninth of Av, is a date that has taken on mythical and historical significance as a day on which calamity befalls the Jewish people. The second-most-important fast day on the Hebrew calendar after Yom Kippur, Tisha b’Av is most closely associated with the date on which the two Temples in Jerusalem were destroyed.

Sukkot is the Jewish holiday of huts, taking place five days after Yom Kippur, and is one of the three great pilgrimage festivals. According to rabbinic tradition, the custom is to sit in flimsy huts that represent the ones that were sat in when the Jews traveled in the desert after leaving Egypt.

Rabbinic literary tradition regards Tisha b’Av as a day reserved for disaster in response to the children of Israel’s lack of faith following the Exodus from Egypt. According to the prophet Zechariah, the Ninth of Av will be a day of rejoicing at some point in the process of redemption.

ROSH HASHANAH

Sunday, Oct. 2 (begins at sundown) Tuesday, Oct. 4 (ends at sundown) Rosh Hashanah is the new year for the Jewish people. It is a fall holiday, taking place in the seventh month of the Jewish year, Nissan, and is a time of rejoicing and introspection toward the year’s previous actions. The historical origins of Rosh Hashanah may be linked with royal enthronement rituals with biblical times, although the Bible does not mention it as the New Year when talking about the holiday. Even though Rosh Hashanah falls in the seventh month of the Jewish year, rabbinic traditions later designated it to become the beginning of the new year. It is associated with the day the world was created.

YOM KIPPUR

Tuesday, Oct. 11 (begins at sundown) Wednesday, Oct. 12 (ends at sundown) Yom Kippur is a Jewish fast day that is associated as the most solemn day of the year. According to tradition, God seals the Book of Life and Death for the upcoming year, so the day is devoted to repenting for sins committed from the previous year. The overall theme of Yom Kippur revolves around repentance, where the community asks to be forgiven of all previous sins and to be written in the Book of Life.

The thought process behind Sukkot is to have a joyful and satisfying holiday by eating and living in temporary shelters and being distanced from material possessions.

SIMCHAT TORAH Monday, Oct. 24 (begins at sundown) Tuesday, Oct. 25 (ends at sundown)

This day is the closing of the holiday of Sukkot, when the last readings of the Torah are celebrated. Jews outside of Israel celebrate it with two days, Shemini Atzeret as well as Simchat Torah. Although the significance of Shemini Atzeret is unclear, Simchat Torah is represented as a day when the whole community comes together to celebrate the involvement of the Torah in everyday life.

CHANUKAH

Saturday, Dec. 24 (begins at sundown) Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017 (ends at sundown) Chanukah, a Hebrew word meaning “dedication,” is an eight-day holiday that celebrates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after its defilement by the Greek Seleucids in 164 BCE along with the military victory of the Maccabees, a group of zealots who fought for the right to practice Jewish ritual. Known as the Festival of Lights, Chanukah is a festival that begins on the eve of the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, typically in the month of December. Like Passover, Chanukah is a holiday that celebrates the liberation from oppression as well as freedom of worship and religion. While Chanukah has an element celebrating military victory, there is a theological tradition that explains that the liberation would not have been possible without the miraculous support of the Divine. – Information provided by JTA cjn.org/source

Expert alterations for a perfect fit

I

t only takes one visit to know Alterations Express is the answer to any alteration need. With stores in Woodmere, Mayfield Heights, North Olmsted and Strongsville – as well as Pittsburgh, Akron, Canton and Youngstown – every Alterations Express can repair or alter any garment as quickly as you need it. Staffed with expert tailors and seamstresses, every location is open six days a week, and although appointments are made for bridal gown alterations, no appointment is ever needed for any other alteration. You just walk in with the clothing you need altered. The service begins with a professional fitting in a spacious dressing room. Before you leave you’ll know exactly what your alteration will cost and you tell the staff when you need it. “We can hem pants while you wait. Any other alteration can be completed as quickly as you need it. Normal turnaround is never more than four days,” says Gino Rondinelli, president and owner. Like the name implies, Alterations Express prides itself on a fast turnaround at affordable prices. “What makes our company stand out from the rest is how quickly we do each project and how professional we are,” he adds. “Our service makes it possible for customers to buy a new garment and get it altered the same day so they can wear it out to a party that same night.” For brides planning a wedding, Alterations Express can help them all look their best. “Our seamstresses are expertly qualified to do bridal fittings for not only the bride but also the bridesmaids, mother-of-the-bride and flower girl as well,” says Gino, whose grand-

father was a tailor in Italy and whose father worked in the dry cleaning and men’s formal wear business. “We love to see our brides, their friends and their family in a perfect fit.” “We usually do entire bridal parties for less than what bridal stores charge,” he adds. “We only charge for the alterations needed instead of lumping into a packaged bridal alteration fee.” When you walk into any of the 12 stores, there are three or four fitting rooms in front and a workroom in back where you can see the seamstresses hemming, mending and sewing garments. With a row of professional sewing machines and spools of thread in every color, it is quite an impressive production area. Everyone is friendly and happy to be sewing. As an extra measure of service, each seamstress or tailor stamps his or her name on the work order. When you pick up your clothing, you feel a more personal connection, and it shows that they proudly stand by their work. Gino genuinely credits his staff for his happy customers. Bridal, formals, business or casual, you can always depend on Alterations Express to get the work done whenever you need it.

There’s no need to forsake quality in your home construction

W

hen building a new home or remodeling an existing home, high quality does not necessarily translate to higher cost. You may be surprised how far your budget can take you with the right construction company. Myers Homes, known for building and remodeling beautiful, upscale homes across Northeast Ohio, specializes in executing projects of the highest possible quality within basically any budget. Building quality on a budget is not about shopping around for the lowest prices. “A house has an initial cost, and then it has a cost over time,” explains Rob Myers, owner of Myers Homes. “Using our knowledge to decide what needs to go into the initial cost matrix ends up giving our clients benefits over time.” For example, buying a $15 faucet at the hardware store may reduce your initial cost. When it breaks and you have to replace it a year later, however, you may end up paying more than if you had initially purchased a slightly more expensive faucet. Making informed decisions about product selection can greatly reduce the overall price in the long run. The design of the project can have a profound impact on costs as well. “We like to be involved with our projects from the start, that’s where we can have the biggest impact on costs. Site selection, design, floorplan, exterior design, material selection-these are the places budgets are made or blown,” says Myers. Having provided award-winning construction services for more than two decades, Myers Homes knows the tricks of the trade “People get fooled by looking at the surface of things and saying, ‘This is good quality,’ or, ‘This is bad quality,’ when really the nature of the quality of any item is beneath the surface,” he says. “People know this intuitively, but when it comes to construction and homes they don’t know enough about what’s underneath to make that call.” On the Myers Homes website, there’s a blog entry about selecting a contractor, distilled down to 10 questions (www.myershomes.com/ how-to-choose-a-custom-home-builder). These questions touch on aspects of the homebuilder’s construction philosophy, from flooring and beams to shower drains and dry-basement

guarantees. The responses will provide a window into the contractor’s thoughts and building practices. For example, whether the company provides a guarantee that your basement will stay dry. While most buyers take for granted that their basements are waterproof – especially in brand-new homes – contractors are not required by code to guarantee this. In fact, most builders do not guarantee that your basement will stay dry, and you may have no idea until you have problems. Myers Homes, on the other hand, confidently gives a 20-year guarantee that the basement will stay dry in all new construction. “It all goes back to really trying to understand the people you’re working with on what is going to be the most expensive thing you ever buy,” Myers says. Now is the perfect time to start planning for spring construction. You can begin the process by calling Myers Homes at 440-708-2424 and meeting with Myers to learn more about his company’s business philosophy and practices. You also can email him at rob@myershomesco.com.

Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage offers identity, culture and connection

T

he 24,000-square-foot Beachwood building clad in hand-chiseled golden Jerusalem limestone houses a vibrant cultural institution. Opened in 2005, the Maltz Museum fosters an appreciation of Jewish heritage and the diversity of the human experience. The nonprofit shares moving stories of individuals who’ve had the courage to break down barriers. It also offers a platform for creative expression and a safe forum to engage in challenging conversations. Each year, more than 7,000 students visit the museum, gaining insights into historical events that help them envision a brighter future. Nearly 4,000 passionate teens take a stand against discrimination in the museum’s Stop the Hate®: Youth Speak Out essay contest. Concerts, panel discussions, staged readings, film screenings and cross-cultural events attract visitors from across the region. “The Maltz Museum celebrates culture and explores identity to promote a more inclusive society,” explains Executive Director Ellen Rudolph. “Examining the commonalities and differences that exist among us through the lens of past and current events affords perspective and encourages greater connection among people.” Whether it’s diving into the immigrant experience on a tour of The American Story exhibition or admiring an impressive collection of Judaica from The Temple-Tifereth Israel, a trip to the Maltz Museum brings people together and history to life. This year, the Maltz Museum presents a powerful exhibition that will debut in Cleveland before traveling across the country. Using recently declassified artifacts from the Mossad–Israel’s Secret Intelligence Service, Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann (February 19 – June 12, 2016) documents the pursuit, capture, extradition and April 1961 trial of one of the world’s most notorious escaped Nazi war criminals. The world premiere exhibition is a co-production of Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, Israel; the Mossad and the Maltz Museum.

Windsor Heights meets Alzheimer’s residents where they are in the world

W

indsor Heights Alzheimer’s Special Care Center, a JEA Senior Living assisted living center located at 23311 Harvard Road in Beachwood, Ohio, opened its doors in December 2014. It is the only community in the city of Beachwood dedicated to Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Beautifully situated on a hill overlooking the city, it is a secured environment that allows residents to wander safely in the comfort of their home. “Windsor Heights is different from other Alzheimer’s communities because we group residents according to their abilities – what they can still do, not what they can no longer accomplish,” says Terry Sombat, administrator. “We focus on using daily activity programs instead of turning to medications whenever possible. It is a very stimulating environment.” It is a 66-bed, beautifully designed building with a secured outdoor walking path and a large inner courtyard with piped-in music, shaded porch and fountain area. Known for its “Meaningful Moments” programs, Windsor Heights provides daily activities that are unique to each resident to help engage them in a purposeful way. Health Services Director Kathy Doberstyn is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and helps provide ongoing training for employees, family members and the community at large. Using training videos from Tepa Snow, a nationally recognized Alzheimer’s specialist, Windsor Heights provides the latest care techniques in a loving manner. JEA Senior Living is a private, familyowned company that is committed to being the leader in providing quality personal services to our residents while honoring the experience of aging. This goal is achieved by providing

positive activities, effective communication and maintaining an environment that is “success oriented.” Our facility strives to meet the resident where they are in their world instead of demanding that they be in ours. For more information, call Terry Sombat at 216-839-1300.

Leading a brain-healthy lifestyle

W

hat factors are important for a healthy lifestyle? A recent study by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) found brain health was the second most important factor in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Brain health involves many factors including cognitive fitness, emotional wellness, social well-being and personal health. That’s why at the Menorah Park campus, we place an emphasis on a brain healthy lifestyle through our comprehensive residential options and community services through a continuum of 16 programs. Cognitive fitness: How do you exercise your brain? Think of our new Center 4 Brain Health as a “memory university” or “college of the brain”. Individuals touched by concerns about memory and thinking skills, including those diagnosed and not diagnosed with brain health issues, could benefit from our programs and services, including: brain aerobics classes, vocational/volunteer opportunities for individuals with memory or thinking concerns, free memory screenings, memory status assessments, care partner support groups, and a brain health information resource center. Learn to think about your brain health differently and workout your brain at our Center 4 Brain Health. Emotional wellness: Our motto “One Campus, Many Solutions, One Person at a Time” signifies how every individual is able to access programs that fit their needs so that they may thrive and maintain the highest level of independence possible – all in a location they know and trust. We are home to more than 900 senior adults with trendsetting residences, programs and a caring staff. Our residential services include: a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility; Stone Gardens and Wiggins Place, assisted living residences; The R.H. Myers Apartments, an independent living residence; and Helen’s Place, a memory care residence located within Stone Gardens. Menorah Park is consistently adding something special, vital and joyous to each person’s life, treating all as important members of our community. Addi-

tionally, our new Piazza offers residents, families and friends a new social gathering space on our campus that boasts an array of attractions, including: live music, gelato, Italian appetizers, a wine bar and highdefinition movies in the evening. Social well-being: Our Adult Day Center program offers adults emotional wellness and socialization through a full day of activities and exercises designed to keep program participants engaged in meaningful pursuits. Our award-winning Aging Resources Center offers an electronic library of information from experts and professional nationally known sites to help with the aging process. Our highly attended quarterly seminars provide education on issues of community interest in collaboration with local physicians, geriatric experts, and health care providers such as the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals. Personal health: The Health Maintenance program offered by Menorah Park’s Peter B. Lewis Aquatic & Therapy Center is dedicated to personalized support to help participants maintain their health goals. Expert therapists provide highly skilled land-based and aquatic physical therapy as well as occupational and speech therapies based on an individual’s needs. These established positive relationships can continue through the Center’s Health Continuity Program, enabling clients to maintain physical wellbeing in familiar surroundings with people who know and care about them. Our home health services, serving areas in and around Beachwood, Akron, Canton and Portage counties, and our Adaptive Living Shoppe, serving the general community, provide the additional support needed to help individuals be at their best with a variety of skilled nursing, homemaking services, and products for an easier life. No matter what the program or service, Menorah Park is committed to its Jewish values, dedicated to helping people live life to its fullest. If you’re here, you’re at home, and no matter who you are, you are an important member of our community, and we are devoted to you.

Montefiore Offers New In-Home Memory Care Program

M

ontefiore, a leader in senior health care and wellness for Northeast Ohio’s aging community for more than 134 years, is pleased to announce the launch of its new In-Home Memory Care Program, designed to provide memory care services and support at home so individuals can live independently in their residence as long as possible. This unique program is one of the first in the region and aims to help community members age in place while easing the burden and stress of caregiving on family members. Montefiore’s In-Home Memory Care Program offers a coordinated approach to helping those with memory impairment live independently. This easy two-step process begins with a comprehensive assessment to evaluate the capabilities, functionality and safety of the individual. The first step includes a full nursing assessment where there is a medication review and vital sign evaluation, a home life safety review, a nutritional assessment and a life enrichment evaluation to learn about hobbies, interests and overall quality of life. Additionally, the assessment covers core functional and cognitive skills to help identify areas of need along with conversations with caregivers to provide insight and a clear picture into daily routines. In the last part of the assessment, the team identifies any specialized needs and coordinates subsequent services. In the second step, Montefiore’s In-Home Memory Care team reviews the information collected in the assessment and develops a full report and comprehensive plan of care tailored to a loved one’s care and interests and is consistent with current routines. In addition to medical and nursing care, our expert team offers a menu of care options and strategies to address unmet needs, provide referrals and arrange for services, including but not limited to private care services and home health care, home safety improvements, medical and nutritional services, interest and activity stimulation and any further support services. The team will also help identify when individuals can no longer remain safely at home and support them through a care facility transition.

Clockwise, from top left: Kristen Morelli, John Burkley, Mary Anne Bannan and Amy Finkenthal Montefiore’s new In-Home Memory Care team is comprised of knowledgeable and compassionate nurses, social workers and experts in the field of dementia care. Kristen Morelli, BS, ADC, CDP, program manager, is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and leads the program with more than 16 years of experience working with patients with a wide range of memory care impairments and their families. The team also includes Mary Anne Bannan, RN, CDP, who brings 35 years of nursing and dementia care experience, Amy Finkenthal, LSW, serves as the licensed social worker for the program, and John Burkley, MPH, care navigator, will guide program participants and their families through the landscape of care, support and services. For more information or to schedule a comprehensive assessment, contact Kristen Morelli, program manager, at (216) 910-2323 or email kmorelli@montefiorecare.org or visit us online at www.montefiorecare.org.

Mazel Tov! CJN celebrates Difference Makers

In 2015, the Cleveland Jewish News created 18 Difference Makers, a celebration aimed at recognizing individuals who embody tikkun olam (repairing the world) and highlighting the best of what Northeast Ohio’s Jewish community has to offer. Due to an overwhelming response for nominations from the community – and a wealth of worthy nominees – the inaugural class of Difference Makers was expanded to 36, or double chai. In addition, Executive Caterers at Landerhaven CEO Harlan Diamond was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. A sold-out crowd of more than 700 attended a Nov. 18 event to recognize these individuals at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights. Joe Kanfer, chairman and CEO of Akron-based GOJO Industries, served as the keynote speaker, and Diamond was introduced by George V. Voinovich, former U.S. senator, Ohio governor and mayor of Cleveland. On the following pages, we revisit the 2015 class of Difference Makers with excerpts from the profiles that were originally published on Nov. 13 in the CJN. To read the full profiles as written by CJN staff, visit cjn.org/differencemakers.

DIFFERENCE MAKERS

“Double Chai” in 2015

Harlan Diamond Lifetime Achievement Award recipient

H

arlan Diamond doesn’t do his charitable work through boards. He laughingly said that he has been kicked off of every board he has ever been on. “I’m not good on boards,” Diamond said with a chuckle. “I’m much better at doing the work.” His charitable work stems from his regular work. Both have lasted nearly a lifetime. Diamond, CEO of Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights, has been in the food service industry since he was 15. His charitable roots extend further, back to his grandmother’s house, where frequent backyard card parties supported one organization or another. Their dining room table was always covered with charitable items. When the homeless and hungry would walk up to their door during The Great Depression, she’d greet them with food and a quarter. “It sure made an impact on me,” Diamond said.

”It was just a natural thing. You grow up that way, you don’t know any different.” At Landerhaven, Diamond has been able to make an impact in a variety of ways. There are the thousands of people who got their first job at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven. That was where they learned the value of hard work and the social skills required in the kitchen and in the dining room. There is also Philanthropia, organized in the wake of Sept. 11, after Diamond realized that everyone was shipping their money to New York, leaving Cleveland charities without the support they were accustomed to. “As the year wore on from September, I was inundated with requests,” Diamond said. Diamond decided to turn his annual Corporate Club luncheon into an event supporting these charities. The fee that supported Landerhaven in hosting Corporate Club luncheons went to charity instead. Diamond absorbed the cost. The event has grown from 200 guests and $9,000 raised its first year to bringing in six figures annually. cjn.org/source

DIFFERENCE MAKERS Steve Weinberg Age: 72 As a professional: Weinberg Wealth Management From his profile: “I think I realized at a young age that I would be able to participate and do more to further and assist the Jewish community than my family had done prior,” Weinberg said. (Lay leader and community activist Elmer) Paull helped him find his true path, his parents’ condition nourished that impulse, and now Weinberg has turned his attention to the younger generation.

Chuck Whitehill Age: 67 As a professional: Retired From his profile: After retiring three years ago to care for his wife full time, Whitehill still has worked to remain a strong influence in the Jewish community. He has put a great deal of focus into the education system. As a member of the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland, Whitehill combines fundraising efforts for the Jewish Federation of Cleveland to enhance educational opportunities for the community.

Jerry Zahler Age: 88 As a professional: Zahler Realty owner From his profile: Zahler has aimed to repair crumbling Jewish cemeteries throughout Cleveland. “I went to the Federation and explained that these are our cemeteries,” he said. “The Federation realized that no one would help if they didn’t.” The Federation has now launched a cemetery preservation campaign to fund the improvements for Jewish cemeteries. The goal is to raise at least $3.5 million for the endowment of annual maintenance necessary.

Dan Zelman Age: 59 As a professional: Paro Services Corp. CEO From his profile: Zelman has been involved with the Campaign for Jewish Needs for 37 years – since he was 22. He said the Federation and its campaign are the backbone of a “phenomenal Jewish community” in Cleveland. “A very high percentage of our Jewish residents are active and supportive of the campaign,” he said. “As a direct result of that, we have one of the finest agencies in the country.
