Today, we mourn the death of author, Nobel laureate and treasured friend Elie Wiesel, z"l. His story and accomplishments are well known—a boy from a small town in Romania who survived one of the most horrific events in human history and went on to become a writer, activist and standard-bearer for the meaning of humanity.
A magnificent evening! Thank you to all of our Lions of Judah who joined us last night at our Summer Social. Together, we are part of a sisterhood of 18,000 women around the world who choose to make a difference as a Lion of Judah, and we thank you for your generosity.
Sammy and Raz. Two girls, two different parts of the world. And this year, they met here in Cleveland for the first time and formed an unbreakable bond for life. All because of Israel.Cleveland.Next (icnext), a Federation-supported initiative.
The Jewish Federation of Cleveland is heartbroken by the horrific massacre of innocent civilians in Orlando, Florida. It is with sadness that we acknowledge this latest act of terrorism - the worst since 9/11, the worst gun violence assault ever in our nation, and the single worst attack targeting the LGBTQ community.
The Jewish Federation of Cleveland is saddened by of the passing of Senator George Voinovich. As Mayor of Cleveland, Governor of Ohio and United States Senator, George Voinovich was the consummate public servant. He was deeply compassionate and truly cared about all people - no matter their race, religion or economic status. He was a steadfast friend of the Jewish community and the State of Israel which he cherished, and he never stopped praying for peace between Israel and its neighbors. Recognizing the evils of anti-Semitism, Senator Voinovich, together with the late Congressman Tom Lantos, was responsible for the creation of a new position in the U.S. State Department: Special Envoy to Monitor World-wide Anti-Semitism.
