Benesch is pleased to share that The Jewish Federation of Cleveland has named Jeffrey Wild as its Chair for the 2019 and 2020 Campaign for Jewish Needs. In this volunteer role, he will be responsible for providing leadership, vision and strategy for the Federation’s annual fundraising effort. The Campaign serves Clevelanders of all backgrounds and the global Jewish community. The Federation is the only organization in Cleveland that considers the needs of the Jewish community as a whole and plans for its future.
“I’ve had the good fortune of working with Jeff at Benesch for many years, and have seen first hand what he can accomplish when he puts his mind to something,” said Gregg Eisenberg, Managing Partner of Benesch Law. “Under Jeff’s guidance, the Campaign can build upon successes of outgoing Campaign Chair David F. Adler, and continue the positive work the Jewish Federation does for the community.”
Jeff has been actively involved in Cleveland’s Jewish community for many years, and currently serves as the Allocations Committee Chair for the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. An advocate for ensuring a strong Jewish future, Jeff is a former president of Fuchs Mizrachi School and former vice president of the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland (JECC). He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Cleveland Development Advisors, an affiliate of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, and Cleveland International Fund.
“I am humbled and honored to serve as the chair for the Campaign for Jewish Needs over the next two years,” Jeff Wild said. “Through my work on the Federation’s Allocations Committee, I’ve seen first-hand the tremendous work our agencies do on a daily basis as well as the many ways the organization serves the diverse needs of our community here and around the world. I look forward to working closely with the Federation’s leadership team and the tremendous network of volunteers to ensure the vibrancy and vitality of our community.”
