BEACHWOOD, OHIO – (December 2, 2015) – Students at Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School (formerly The Agnon School) recently raised $1,427.06 by waging a one week charity Penny Challenge by grade to support the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Annual Campaign for Jewish Needs. This amount represents an increase from last year’s donation. The Federation will use this money to address the diverse needs of the Jewish community, both locally and worldwide.
Thank you, #JewishCleveland for an awesome Saturday night at The Big Event, YLD's signature fundraising event of the year! 400+ young adults celebrated our community and our Campaign with drinks, eats, and live music, plus a personal and powerful story from Event Co-Chair, Sam Krichevsky.
Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate Cleveland! “We have many finish lines to cross, many victories to celebrate, and many marathons to run,” said Steven Litt, who joined fellow panelists Joseph D. Roman and Karen Gahl-Mills, along with moderator Ira C. Kaplan to discuss our city's accomplishments and challenges ahead at the third annual "Cleveland: A 20/20 Vision" event, hosted by KeyBank.

I had the perfect costume this Halloween. It looked great, was easy, and didn’t cost a fortune. Is it something you would wear? Probably not. Was it sewn perfectly and did it have all the best accessories? No. But, it was perfect for me.
