This program is made possible through the generosity of The Constance M. and Philmore J. Haber Memorial Fund of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland which created a permanent restricted endowment fund at the Federation - the Mayer-Haber/Mandel JCC Fund. In addition a three-year start-up grant was secured from the TreuMart Fund.
