A Cleveland area synagogue is raising funds to help Ursuline College repaid serious damage caused by a tornado that ripped through its athletic center on Saturday. No one was injured because the twister tore through the area in the pre-dawn hours, tearing the off the roof and blowing away one wall.
The conservative B’nai Jeshurun, which has more than 1,000 members asked congregants to donate to the former women-only college, where some men now also study.
“They are our neighbor. We have close relations with them. We work with them. We’re collecting as much money as we can and will send it to the college, Rabbi Stephen Weiss told the Cleveland Jewish News.
Ursuline was founded by Roman Catholic nuns as the first women’s college in Ohio.
