Federation’s 106th Annual Meeting Set for April 26

April 14, 2010 at 10:55 am | Posted in Press Releases | Leave a comment

The Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland’s 106th Annual Meeting will take place on Monday, April 26, at 7 p.m., at B’nai Jeshurun Congregation, 27501 Fairmount Boulevard in Pepper Pike.  A highlight of the event will be the recognition of Senator George Voinovich and Kol Israel Foundation as dual recipients of the 2009 Charles Eisenman Award for outstanding community service, the highest honor accorded by the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland.

Also during the evening’s activities, Harley I. Gross, board chair of the Federation, will be honored for his service as the outgoing leader of the Board of Trustees.  A new board chair will be announced, and new board of trustee members will be installed.

The Federation, one of the largest fund-raising and grant-making organizations in Ohio, works in partnership with a network of 15 local social service agencies and four international partners to coordinate needs assessment, planning and budgeting to create and enhance programming.  Federation-supported activities help thousands of people: preschoolers through seniors, as well as new immigrants to the community.  Federation also maintains a strong partnership with dozens of local synagogues and supplemental schools to support educational activities and social action programming in the Jewish and general communities.

Federation activities are made possible by the annual Campaign for Jewish Needs, supporting foundations, philanthropic and endowment funds, and the Centennial Initiative for Jewish Cleveland.  Federation activities are based on the Jewish values of tikkun olam (making the world a better place), tzedakah (justice), and chesed (kindness).

For more information and to RSVP for the annual meeting, please call 216.566.9200, ext. 503 or visit http://www.jewishcleveland.org.
