jHUB provides new ways for interfaith couples and families to comfortably explore, discover, personalize, and discuss the meaning of Jewish culture and values in the modern world.  We are here to help you navigate life's challenges in a comfortable place- at your own pace.  jHUB is a joint initiative of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland, and an 18Doors affiliate.
