...Chabad.org points out that "Most Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries launch their arrival in a new city or country with programs such as one-on-one study, holiday programs, summer camp and Hebrew school." However, with the exorbitant cost of shipping bodies to the United States for burial, the Poliwodas see a Jewish cemetary as their top priority. “We see the need to open the cemetery as incredibly important,” says Hana. “We’re looking to educate people about the beauty and importance of a traditional Jewish burial.”...

He’s got a good-sized following. He puts on a Purim carnival and a Chanukah party, and the city has given him permission to light up a giant chanukiah each Chanukah outside the art gallery.”...

Frank and his chef brother, Dave, were approached by Chabad of Cleveland, a Judaism advocacy group, to open for the week in the now-defunct John Q's, on the northwest corner of Public Square. While most of their food – from fried chicken to gazpacho to wrap sandwiches – is prepared in their certified kosher kitchen at Young Israel synagogue in Beachwood, kosher sanitary and religious law allows them to cook a ribeye steak on site...

A Pop-Up Restaurant in Downtown Cleveland Brings Kosher Cuisine to the GOP Convention
Tablet,Tuesday, July 19, 2016
...The Chabad has provided food for commuting young professionals before, but never in this form. “We didn’t have a pop-up restaurant, we did food deliveries,” said Chabad director Rabbi Yossi Freedman. Four years ago, Chabad in Tampa provided a delivery menu for the 2012 RNC, but was located far from the actual convention center. In setting up their own venue, Freedman and his staff sought to do even better. By taking over a prominent space in the heart of downtown Cleveland, he said, “we’re kind of investing money in this, taking a little gamble, but we’re here to service the people.”
