Community Generously Pledges to Support Needs in Cleveland and Around the World

The Super Sunday phone-a-thon, in support of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland’s 2010 Campaign for Jewish Needs, raised $1,240,817 from a total of 2,851 donors on November 8, 2009.

Almost 500 volunteers called community members during the daylong event at The Mandel Jewish Community Center of Cleveland in Beachwood.  An extra motivation this year was the KeyBank Challenge: KeyBank matched increases and new pledges made on Sunday.  Super Sunday is a kickoff to the Campaign that will conclude on May 13, 2010.

The annual Campaign meets social service and educational needs in the Jewish and general communities in Cleveland, and Jewish communities in Israel and around the world.  Locally, the Campaign helps more than 40,000 people served by a network of 16 social service agencies and schools.  Three overseas partner agencies also receive Campaign funding to extend help from Cleveland to the global Jewish community.

Super Sunday attracts volunteers of all ages.  There were families represented by three generations, and young adults who said they grew up going to Super Sunday.  Co-chairs of Super Sunday were Amy and Simon Feiglin, Lara and Ronnen Isakov, and Eliana LeVine and Josh Polster.  Community Campaign co-chairs are Karen and Ira Levinsky, Steve Monto, and Joyce and Eric Wald.  Event sponsors were KeyBank (Gold), Time Warner Cable (Silver) and Patrons – Cleveland Jewish News and Contempo Cuisine.

For more information about the Campaign, or to make a pledge, visit www.jewishcleveland.org or call 216.566-9200 ext. 273.
