Heights High student to serve on philanthropic panel
The Jewish Federation of Cleveland has selected David Fleischer, a Heights High junior, to serve on the Saltzman Youth Panel. Fleischer is one of 40 students who will meet weekly this school year to learn about the Cleveland Jewish community. “We will participate in service projects, leadership development and community building,” said Fleischer.
The culminating experience for the panel will be to allocate $50,000 to local charities. The panel brings together Jewish students of different backgrounds, and provides them with the opportunity to learn about the philanthropic process, responding to community needs, and the obligation to do what is just and right.
The Saltzman Youth Panel was established through the Maurice Saltzman Youth Grant Program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland to educate young members of the Jewish community about the importance of communal decision-making, philanthropy and community engagement.
Joy Henderson is the parent/community liaison for Heights High.
