WHAT INSPIRES

My inspiration is our Jewish community – our people, traditions, and prayers. That’s why I give to the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Campaign for Jewish Needs. Our strength – who we are as Jews – is about passing kindness and compassion onto others and to our next generation. This is our obligation: to take care of each other as family who live around the corner and across the globe, as we aspire to leave no community member behind.

That’s why I give. But how about you? What inspires you? Whether it’s feeding the hungry, comforting the sick, caring for the elderly, educating youth, ensuring a Jewish future, speaking out for what’s right, or supporting Israel – it’s all happening here. With your support, we are making hundreds of miracles happen every single day, by changing and saving tens of thousands of lives in Cleveland, Israel, and 70 countries around the globe.

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS) continues to delegitimize the State of Israel, with growing support on our college campuses. We are helping young adults build strong Jewish identities by deepening their connection to Israel through personal experiences and providing the tools needed to stand up and speak out for what they believe in. We are proud to be Jewish Cleveland and support Israel. Together, we stand united. 8 | 2018 CAMPAIGN FOR JEWISH NEEDS

INSPIRED by EDUCATING OUR YOUTH

With your support, Federation focuses on educating our community’s next generation of leaders. One way we do this is by providing Jewish camp experiences that bring young Jews together to learn more about who they are. Research shows that when children return home from Jewish summer camp they have a deepened connection to Jewish life and culture, and they have developed new friendships that will last their lifetimes. These connections, to people and community, are transformational.
