The Cleveland Chesed Center is committed to ensuring that individuals and families in the Jewish community are provided with basic necessities including food, household supplies, furniture and clothing, all while respecting their dignity and privacy.

We raised over $300,000 to support Cleveland's Jews!  Our campaign was so successful, that we've entered a bonus round.  If you weren't able to give on July 17th, your dollar can still be matched until we reach $325,000.  You can still show you care!
