The third cohort of Coaching Circles concluded in July. Over a six month period, 36 women were divided into “circles” of six people to discuss topics around building trust, leadership, communication and its impact, asking powerful questions, emotional self-awareness, and assessing, reflecting and prioritizing various aspects of life (e.g. family, community, work, religion, money, health, and personal growth).
One of the first things Lisa and Josh Mayers of Beachwood did when they returned to Cleveland 16 years ago was get involved with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.

Israel at 70 is a community-wide celebration to mark Israel’s 70th birthday. The Jewish Federation of Cleveland, together with local synagogues, agencies, and organizations, are bringing Israel to Cleveland through a variety of arts, cultural, and educational events for all ages.

That is the same message of Empowering Youth Exploring Justice (EYEJ) – to empower and amplify the voices of teens and pre-teens by bridging them with diverse individuals to engage in interactive discussions centered around social justice.
