The Jewish Federation of Cleveland
Helps to make Jewish education and Jewish camping affordable, stands up for Israel, and connects people socially and culturally to their heritage in countless ways. We respond to emergencies near and far, from Haiti to the Jersey shore.
In addition, other primary Federation functions include community planning and research, community relations, leadership development and philanthropic planning and endowment programs. The Federation’s overseas programs and activities create “living” bridges between Jews in Cleveland and Jews around the world.
