Madeline Bleiweiss, Founder of JCLEPresenTense Fellow Creates Cleveland’s New Hot Spot for Young Jews

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL – July 15, 2010 – Lebron James may be leaving Cleveland, but Madeline Bleiweiss is confident the Cleveland Jewish community isn’t going anywhere. Full of villages, culture, and entertainment, yet lacking a Jewish framework to appeal to cultural Jews, Cleveland, Ohio is Bleiweiss’ diamond in the rough. Bleiweiss, a Cleveland Fellow participating in PresenTense as part of the PresenTense Jewish Federation of Cleveland Fellowship Program is determined to promote her hometown in a youthful, trendy light for graduate students and young professional through her new initiative, Jewish Cleveland (JCLE).

Where assimilation is rampant and Jewish continuity is in question, Bleiweiss aims to utilize her creative talents and communications skills to plan cultural events targeting the young Jews in the Cleveland area.

After a brief stint in Washington D.C, Bleiweiss, a self-described “former suit,” returned home to Cleveland to find an absence of the cultural Jewish life she encountered on her college campus.
