OVERVIEW: Elly Kleinman and family move their philanthropy through the Kleinman Family Foundation. The Kleinmans focus their giving on New York. An important part of the family's work involves the Kleinman Holocaust Education Center (KHEC) in Brooklyn, which documents the history of the Holocaust.
BACKGROUND: Elly Kleinman graduated from Brooklyn College with a bachelor's degree in psychology from Brooklyn College. He served as a manager at Quality Care, a national home healthcare company. In 1982, he was named president and CEO of Americare Companies.
FUNDING PROFILE: Elly Kleinman's support of the Jewish community strongly centers around the New York metropolitan area, even more specifically Brooklyn, New York. The borough is home to the Kleinman Holocaust Education Center (KHEC), which documents the history of the Holocaust. Kleinman serves as president of KHEC and steadily supports the center via his family foundation.
Beth Medrash Govoah in Lakewood, NJ, is another important grantee, and home to the Kleinman Campus. Other education outfits the family has supported include Yeshiva Darchei Torah, Diaspora Yeshiva, Torah Academy of Brooklyn and Yeshiva Simchas Chaim.
The Kleinmans are also heavily involved with OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services, which has "served as a dependable haven of individual and family support, helping people of all ages effectively manage disability, surmount everyday challenges, heal from trauma, promote physical and emotional wellbeing, and manage with strength and dignity during times of crisis." The Kleinmans have given strong support to The Mesorah Heritage Foundation, as well. The outfit "recruits accomplished translators, scholars, writers, and editors who free our great texts from the captivity of ancient languages and bring them to English-speaking Jews in books."
The family also supports religious organizations like Congregation Bais Yitzchok and Congregation Bats Yosher.
LOOKING FORWARD: Expect the Kleinman's work to continue to largely involve local outfits in the New York area.
