A new Jewish Community Federation headquarters in downtown Cleveland could be part of our city's Renaissance.

Jewish Community Overwhelmingly Supports Federation
We are concerned that the Jewish
Community Federation’s proposed
move from downtown Cleveland
to Beachwood will accomplish the
opposite of its goal to strengthen and grow Jewish Cleveland.
As the central address of the
Jewish community, the Federation
serves more than just the needs
of the Jewish community. Being
located in downtown Cleveland,
where our ancestors settled, makes a crucial statement that the Jewish community is an integral part of the fabric of life in Cleveland, that it believes in Cleveland’s future and that we have a significant voice
and a stake in helping advance the
entire community, which is in the
long run in our self-interest.
We don’t deny our city is facing
tough times.
Yet our ability to attract and retain future generations of Jewish Clevelanders is inextricably linked to the future of the city of Cleveland.Look around and you will see the progress taking place every day: Cleveland is currently
Cleveland is currently
undergoing $5 billion in infrastructure, commercial and residential construction

Completion of the Euclid
Corridor project is months away

There will be more than 6,500 apartments and condominiums downtown by 2012
We are asking the Federation’s
board of trustees to engage the
community in its decision making process;
to hold public forums where they can hear directly from concerned citizens;to conduct research so they know how to attract and retain the Jewish leaders of tomorrow.
