Malka Rosenberg said her husband, who died in 2016, had no plans to sell the store. And she said she hasn’t found anyone to take over the store, but she knows the kind of person she is looking for.
“Somebody who will do everything and anything,” she said. “Over here, you can’t just say I’m doing one thing, you can’t. If a customer walks in asking for something, you have to help. That’s the first thing, you have to take care of them at the register, you have to take care of their needs.”
For now, Malka Rosenberg plans to continue helping customers every way she can, whether it’s passing on savings or providing “the best selection” of kosher wine in the area.

Snyder’s Lance announces voluntary recall of a limited amount of 6.5 oz Emerald® Glazed Walnuts due to potential presence of undeclared peanuts, almonds, cashews and pecans.
The Jewish Federation of Cleveland today announced that its president, Stephen H. Hoffman, intends to retire from this position on December 31, 2018. Hoffman (67) has served in this capacity since 1983. A search committee of the Board of Trustees, along with the assistance of executive search professionals, will oversee the process by which Hoffman’s successor is named.
“Steve’s impact on the Jewish community in Cleveland, Israel, and around the world cannot be overstated,” said Board Chair Gary L. Gross. “During his tenure, he elevated every single facet of our work to enable us to anticipate the ever-changing needs of our community here and abroad through his deep commitment and compassion.
“As impressive as these achievements are, I think Steve’s true legacy will be that he taught us all the true meaning of community and the endless power of tzedakah,” Gross continued. “Thanks to his superb leadership, we are blessed to move into this next chapter of our organization’s storied history with an impeccable reputation, a clear vision for the future, and the strong financial footing to support our integrated and inclusive growth plan.”
“It has been my distinct honor to have served the Jewish community in this role for close to 35 years,” said Hoffman. “My decision to retire at the end of the year comes after careful consideration. I’m proud to have played a part in strengthening the meaningful impact the Jewish Federation of Cleveland has had both here and abroad over the years. I have treasured the professional-volunteer relationship over these many decades, which I believe is the ‘secret sauce’ to Cleveland’s success as a Jewish community. I look forward to working closely with Gary and the team as we usher in this new era of leadership.”

CH City Hall at Severance circle being evacuated.
LJN received word from two parties that some residents who failed to schedule an appointment to have their meters upgraded to Clear Reads had their water turned off today. According to both parties this action was taken without warning or notice.
From a reader:
As you may be aware, Cleveland Water is upgrading water meters and customers need to schedule an appointment to have their meters upgraded.
I got a call from a tenant earlier this evening that her water was shut-off without warning since an appointment was not scheduled (she sent a picture of the notice and we pay the water bill so it was not due to non-payment). (They may have posted a door hanger on her door but no letter was sent.)
Many people (especially elderly) may have neglected to schedule this upgrade. You may want to let the community know to spare them the agmas nefesh of having their water shut-off. ( A Friday Shut-off means no water until Monday!)
Cleveland Heights Vice-Mayor Jason Stein forwarded the following link (http://www.clevelandwater.com/cleveland-heights-clear-reads-project) where you can learn more about the program. There is no specific way to schedule the appointment online, however, so unless you’re certain you’ve been upgraded or have an appointment to be upgraded, you’re best off calling Cleveland Water to make sure you didn’t miss any notices and aren’t scheduled for a shutoff. Their number is 216.664.3130. As per comments by Water Man and D Schwab, the best number to use is 844-379-9984.
Due to an E. coli outbreak that has now affected 13 states including Ohio, Consumer Report took the unusual step of suggesting temporarily avoiding romaine lettuce. While the CDC hasn’t yet declared romaine lettuce to be the culprit in the outbreak, Consumer Reports’ suggestion is based on romaine lettuce’s implication in a similar outbreak in Canada.
The state liquor stores are doing a major sale – major metzias – Google “ohio last call” and you’ll get articles – this one has the pricing and the sales price.
Time to stock up for yourself and your shuls.
From Rabbi Simcha Dessler:
Due to the frigid weather and wind factor predicted and expected for tomorrow there will be no school .
We wish everyone a safe day and a wonderful, relaxing Shabbos.
From Rabbi Joel:
Due to the extreme cold (expected wind chill of -21 degrees in the morning), the Fuchs Mizrachi School will be closed tomorrow, January 5th.
The second grade Mesibat Chumash will still take place as scheduled
Have a warm and great Shabbat!
Newly installed Mayor Brennan fired University Heights’ Fire Chief Zook on his first day in office. He named Captain Perko as the interim replacement. This move was generally expected and in line with Brennan’s campaign promises to better support the city’s fire department, firefighters, and address their safety concerns as outlined in a letter
As chief, Perko said he intends to work on improving fire prevention and public education, and to increase firefighter training and development.
Local Jewish News is encouraged that Mayor Brennan has immediately focused on improving fire safety in the city. We look forward to similar attention to the recent escalation in criminal activity in University Heights.
MetroHealth will be opening a hospital at the Severance Circle facility on January 4th. With the addition of 12 beds to the facility, the hospital will be aimed at treating adults with less serious conditions that need short-term hospitalization. There will be no planned newborn deliveries.
The hospital will have a Bikur Cholim room. Further, in an effort to understand the frum community’s needs and cater care to it, MetroHealth has consulted with Rabbi Akiva Feinstein and others.
The team at MetroHealth also said they were working to enhance the patient experience, particularly for the Orthodox community. MetroHealth consulted Rabbi Akiva Feinstein, a full-time chaplain at Montefiore in Beachwood who also works through the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s chaplaincy program, for advice on better serving the needs of Jewish patients.
