The Super Sunday phone-a-thon on February 27, in support of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s 2011 Campaign for Jewish Needs, had a goal for the day of securing 1,800 gifts.  The goal was surpassed with 1,860 donors raising $666,908.  KeyBank, a gold sponsor, was matching new and increased gifts.

Approximately 500 volunteers called community members during the daylong event at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, 25701 Science Park Drive in Beachwood.  Super Sunday serves as a community rally for the Campaign that will run through May 18, 2011.

The annual Campaign meets social service and educational needs in the Jewish and general communities.  Locally, the Campaign helps more than 40,000 people served by a network of 14 social service agencies and schools.  Four 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 Lara & Ronnen Isakov, Loren & Keith Israelstam and Meg & Jon Ratner.  Co-chairs of the Community Campaign are Helen & Joseph Feldman, Karen & Ira Levinsky and Sandy Seiger.  Gary L. Gross is general chair of the 2011 Campaign for Jewish Needs and Michael Siegal is board chair of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.  Sponsors of Super Sunday were KeyBank (Gold) and Patrons – Cleveland Jewish News and Contempo Cuisine.
