To celebrate 100 years, Beachwood is honoring its achievements and reflecting on its roots with a public art project. Similar to projects like the Cows of Chicago or Crabs of Baltimore, Beachwood High School Junior Achievement partnered with the City of Beachwood to create the Leaves of Beachwood. Named for beech trees that originally covered most of the 5 square mile village, Beechwood became known as Beachwood.
A group of 20 Jewish young professionals and supervisors from St. Petersburg, Russia, visited Northeast Ohio last week to learn about the region’s Jewish community – and to take those lessons back home to help strengthen the Jewish community there.
No words can adequately describe the suffering of those who experienced the horrors of the Holocaust firsthand. And, no words can adequately describe the heartache felt by the hundreds of Cleveland community members who join together each year to listen to survivors tell their stories at Yom Hashoah V’Hagvurah, on Holocaust Remembrance Day. We created this video in partnership with Kol Israel Foundation to share the importance of Holocaust education. Today, children survivors are nearing the end of their lives and we won’t be able to hear their stories firsthand forever. Please watch and share as we say “Never Again.”
