The Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland is recognizing donors to the 2010 Campaign for Jewish Needs at a community event featuring Mitch Albom, best-selling author, columnist and radio host, on Tuesday, April 13, at 7:30 p.m. at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven, 6111 Landerhaven Drive, Mayfield Heights.

Albom, the best-selling author of Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day, is a columnist for the Detroit Free Press, a radio host and television commentator.  Before becoming a journalist, Albom was an amateur boxer, nightclub singer and pianist.  He will speak about his latest book, have a little faith, the true story of a rabbi and an African-American pastor and their messages of faith.  Albom’s sensitivity and humor will engage those who were born into faith, have lost faith or are still searching.

The event is to honor donors who make a gift of $180 or more to the 2010 Campaign for Jewish Needs.  Attendees who have not already made their gift will have the opportunity to make their commitment at the event.  The cost to attend is $20, which includes a dessert reception (kosher dietary laws observed).  There is no charge for high school and college students who make gifts of $18 or more to the 2010 Campaign.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.  To RSVP, visit http://www.jewishcleveland.org, call 216.566.9200, ext. 740 or e-mail campaign@jcfcleve.org.

The Federation’s 2010 Campaign for Jewish Needs, chaired by Michael Siegal, continues through May 12, and raises funds to meet the needs of thousands of people in Cleveland, Israel and around the world.
