Shari Perlmuter grew up in Jewish Cleveland and has spent a lifetime not only giving her time and money to the Jewish Federation of Cleveland but her heart as well. In recognition of that lifelong commitment and passion for the Federation and the Jewish community, Shari is receiving this year’s Ruby Bass Award. Shari hopes her legacy of tikkun olam (repairing the world) lives on for years to come.
Both Kerry and Daryl Kertesz have been involved with the Federation for most of their lives. This year, Super Sunday will be unforgettable as they will be co-chairing the event supporting the annual Campaign for Jewish Needs.
It will be a memorable day for Sarah and Scott Zimmerman, co-chairs of this year’s Super Sunday. They will be able to spend the event with their son, Marc, who will be making his debut at the Campaign for Jewish Needs event on September 25.
The Jewish Federation of Cleveland is proud to announce that Reneé Chelm of Pepper Pike was honored yesterday by The Jewish Federations of North America’s National Women’s Philanthropy with its prestigious Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland Award. The award was announced at the 2016 International Lion of Judah Conference (ILOJC), being held Sept. 11-13 in Washington, D.C.
