CARE for One Another

We help feed the hungry, comfort the sick, aid the elderly, shelter the homeless, and support those in need or with disabilities — wherever they are in the world. We advocate for the vulnerable and fight for social justice. We also invest significant resources in preventing, preparing for, and responding to potential security threats to our community.


Food and Friendship for the Elderly Through the Lunch Plus program of the Mandel JCC, a Federation beneficiary agency, we are providing a lifeline to nourishment, friendship, and independence. Along with free transportation to and from, the program serves hot kosher lunches six days a week in the Warrensville Community Apartments. Lunch Plus also provides free activities and services that encourage seniors to maintain independent lifestyles through exercise and social opportunities.

Training Community Members to Safeguard Our Institutions The Federation’s Community Security Alliance (CSA) educates community members in our local beneficiary agencies and synagogues on best practices in observing and reporting suspicious activity. This newly launched program is just one way we’re providing for the safety and security of our community so we can all feel comfortable living our Jewish lives.

A Lifeline for Those in Need Jewish Family Service Association (JFSA), a Federation beneficiary agency, received funding to purchase a nine passenger, wheelchair accessible van to transport older adults and individuals with disabilities to medical appointments, errands, and for visiting relatives. Since the grant expired, JFSA relies on the Federation to cover operation and staffing costs for the van, which is used daily to capacity. CASE FOR FEDERATION | 7


PREPARE for the Future We ensure the long-term health and vibrancy of our diverse community. We provide the critical strategic planning

and oversight needed to make life better today and for generations to come. We provide a wide-range of educational programming for all ages that celebrates Jewish values and traditions. We also develop the next generation of leaders through mentoring, teaching, and hands-on experiences.


Mentoring Israel’s At-Risk Youth In an effort to counsel and support at-risk youth in Israel, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and the Jewish Agency for Israel established the Youth Futures program. Mentors guide children and their families in different circles of intervention: personal, familial, social, and educational, with an emphasis on full parental partnership.

Preparing the Next Generation of Leaders The Federation’s Young Leadership Division (YLD) offers unique experiential professional and volunteer opportunities, as well as tailored educational programming through LEADS.

A Jewish Future on Campus The Cleveland Hillel Foundation and Hillel at Kent State University, Federation beneficiary agencies, are engaging and empowering Jewish students through experiences that foster active Jewish life. By engaging undergraduate, graduate, and professional students through leadership opportunities and innovative programming, Hillel helps young adults navigate their college experience.

SHARE our Perspectives We bridge cultural divides, foster mutual respect, and build collaborative relationships. We provide the education

and tools needed to stand up and speak out on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people. We deepen connections to Israel through personal experiences and programs that celebrate our Jewish homeland. We create mutually beneficial collaborations between business and civic leaders in Israel and Greater Cleveland.


Celebrating Israel in Our Day Schools

Combating BDS and Hatred

Advocating with Our Community Partners

Israeli emissaries are brought to our local day schools, synagogues, and teen youth groups to share Israeli life and culture. As a result, young people are learning more about Israel, Israelis, and the Hebrew language. Each year with the Federation’s help, hundreds of young people participate in Israel programs locally and in Israel.

Young leaders are becoming an effective voice in the fight against the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Israel Advocacy Fellows, a Community Relations Committee (CRC) program, invites young adult professionals to explore the complexities of Israel and learn how to talk about Israel with their peers.

Our Community Relations Committee (CRC) develops and sustains relationships with diverse ethnic and religious groups to effect change on issues of broader concerns, such as advocating for bail reform with the NAACP, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry, Hispanic Alliance, NCJW, ADL, and United Black Fund.

REPAIR our World

We respond in times of emergency. Each year we invest significant resources to help people rebuild in the wake of a natural or man-made disasters. We also invest in programs and services that provide a strong safety net during times of personal crises.


Supporting Victims of Natural Disasters When hurricanes devastated parts of Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico in 2017, Cleveland was one of the first federations to send significant relief to victims of these natural disasters.

Rebuilding Lives in Ukraine When Jews face distress around the world the Federation works with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) to help. Recently, we have been helping Ukrainian Jews affected by political and economic instability. Displaced families are able to receive living accommodations, food, career assistance, and schooling.

Responding to Victims of Domestic Violence and Homelessness The Jewish Family Service Association (JFSA) Hebrew Shelter Home, a Federation beneficiary, provides shelter to Jewish women and children seeking haven from domestic violence and homelessness, and safe, temporary housing for adult men. All clients are provided shelter services and a continuum of care from JFSA services as the core of their individualized, comprehensive, and wraparound case management plan.
