THE IMPACT OF

Caring

T GETHER

We care for one another by helping 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.


CARING FOR THE ELDERLY

Federation invests significant time and resources into the care of our community’s elderly. We provide an essential lifeline to food, medical care, and social activities for hundreds of thousands of elderly here and around the world.

CONFRONTING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC

The Jewish Federation of Cleveland is providing resources for families caught in this medical crisis in order to reduce stigma that isolates family members and prevents them from asking for help. Cleveland is the first Jewish community in the country to come together as one to break the silence.

ADDRESSING ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND DEMENTIA

The number of individuals who will suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is expected to nearly double in the next decade. To address the needs of this growing population, the Federation formed an Alzheimer’s/ Dementia Task Force that is leading the community’s coordinated response.

KEEPING OUR COMMUNITY SAFE

Enhancing security is no longer an option. The Federation is the driving force working to keep our community safe and welcoming in the face of increasing anti-Semitism.

HELPING KIDS THRIVE IN CLEVELAND AND ISRAEL

Federation devotes significant resources toward providing the emotional and educational support our children need in order to become healthy, selfsufficient adults.

ENGAGING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS

A critical component of our work is developing the next generation of Jewish leaders – from hands-on training on how to respond to Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) rhetoric to creative community engagement opportunities and relationshipbuilding experiences with peers.

CULTIVATING JEWISH IDENTITY

The Federation strives to bring fulfilling Jewish experiences to less-engaged families and interfaith couples in our community so future generations can thrive. We also help renew Jewish life in places like our sister city of St. Petersburg, Russia, where Judaism was forbidden during 70 years of Communist rule.

THE IMPACT OF

Sharing

T GETHER

We share our perspectives by bridging cultural divides, fostering mutual respect, and building 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.

CREATING STRONG CONNECTIONS

The Jewish Federation of Cleveland actively engages with a wide range of ethnic and religious groups throughout Greater Cleveland in an effort to create better cultural awareness and understanding between neighbors.

REMEMBERING OUR PAST

As the population of Holocaust survivors continues to decline, we must remember their stories. To ensure our history is never forgotten, the Federation honors the past through educational programming for all ages.

FORGING PERSONAL TIES TO ISRAEL

In order to forge an enduring connection to Israeli culture with the next generation, the Federation brings Israel to Cleveland – and Cleveland to Israel – through various hands-on experiences and programs. | 13


THE IMPACT OF

Repairing

T GETHER

14 |

We repair our world by responding in times of emergency and helping people rebuild in the wake of natural or manmade disasters. We also invest in programs and services that provide a strong safety net during times of personal crises.


SUPPORTING VICTIMS OF ANTI-SEMITISM

When terror and tragedy hit our community, we respond by showing we are stronger than hate and providing relief that helps repair.

CARING FOR THOSE IN NEED

When community members’ safety is at risk, we plan for individualized, comprehensive, and wrap-around care to create a path forward.

HELPING PEOPLE LIVE JEWISHLY

We help enable those around the world who wish to live Jewishly by providing support and resources they need to escape persecution, make aliyah, and find a place they can call home.
