Message from the President 4/30/2015

Kim StrausserShabbat Shalom to all of you as we celebrate our first Shabbat in May 2015. I wish you all a peaceful and delightful Shabbat. I encourage you to help repair the world by sending a donation check, if you are able, with the notation “Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund” to: Jewish Federation of Cleveland, PO Box 74320, Cleveland, OH 44194-4320, Re: Nepal Fund. For more information, call 216-593-2900, ext. 218. Alternatively, or in addition, the Reform Movement encourages donations to the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, American Jewish World Service, and Doctors Without Borders. Details regarding these organizations are available on the URJ website Thinking more locally, I would also like to encourage as many of you as possible to participate in the Akron area Mitzvah Day on June 14th. Please set aside some time on this day to plan on helping others. Our board member, Jane Grover, will have some additional details for volunteers. Please be sure to contact her at
