About JECC

The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland (JECC) directs the education and continuity work of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and administers the multi-million dollar Fund for the Jewish Future, the endowment that supports education in day schools, congregational schools, camps, Israel programming, adult education, and more. Created in 1993 as a result of a merger of the Federation’s Commission on Jewish Continuity and Cleveland’s Bureau of Jewish Education (founded in 1924), the JECC ensures Jewish continuity by fostering and strengthening life-long Jewish learning in various settings and forms.
 
Today, the JECC is at the cutting edge of educational practice, working with agencies, congregations, schools, and community leaders to develop and implement programs that dramatically improve Jewish educational systems and the lives of individual Jews.
 
The JECC is a 501c3 under the leadership of Dr. Seymour Kopelowitz (Executive Director) and Beth Rosenberg (Board Chair).
