3Title:  Catherine Leneghan Papers     
 Creator:  Leneghan, Catherine 
 Dates:  1969-2002 
 Abstract:  Catherine Leneghan (b. 1964) was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and is of Irish descent. Both sides of her family originated in County Mayo, Ireland. Her father, Francis Leneghan came from Ballycroy, County Mayo, Ireland, and married Catherine O'Donnell, who is also of Irish descent. Catherine's maternal grandparents are Julia Conway, who hailed from Tourmekeady, County Mayo, and James O'Donnell who came from Islandeady, County Mayo. Her paternal grandparents, Ellen Sweeney came from Innisbiggle, Achill Island, County Mayo, and Francis Leneghan came from Ballycroy, County Mayo. Living in a traditional Irish family upbringing, Catherine was associated with things Irish from an early age. Like so many other Irish on Cleveland's west side, she attended St. Patrick's Grade School in Westpark, Cleveland, and subsequently was a student of St. Joseph's Academy, also in Westpark. She received a degree in Psychology at Cleveland State University. But Catherine's real love was of Irish music and dance. She pursued her career in this field, passing the TCRG exam and the ADCRG exam in the early 1990s. She has not looked back since. Her school, The Leneghan Academy of Traditional Irish Dance has been a success since it opened its doors in 1991. The collection consists of biographical information, newspaper clippings, and photographs.

4Title:  Volunteers for Clevelanders in Israel Records     
 Creator:  Volunteers for Clevelanders in Israel 
 Dates:  1980-2002 
 Abstract:  Volunteers for Clevelanders in Israel (VCI) was founded in 1978 as a non-profit organization with the goal of helping people from Cleveland, Ohio, who had moved to Israel. VCI offered services to Clevelanders planning a long-term or permanent move to Israel and to former Clevelanders now living in Israel. The group was founded by Shirley Goodman, who served as its director until her death in 2006. In Cleveland, VCI offered weekly workshops for those planning to move to Israel. Topics included packing and shipping, buying appliances, culture shock, and dealing with Israeli bureaucracy. VCI also offered Hebrew language classes. In Israel, the majority of services were provided through the Daniel Haas Center, located in Jerusalem, opened in 1983. Former Clevelanders could rely on VCI to help them stay connected to one another and to friends and relatives in Cleveland. A directory of Clevelanders living in Israel was published every few years, and meetings and social events were held regularly. Other services offered included employment assistance, housing interviews, counseling, emergency financial aid, and interest free loans. The Daniel Haas Center closed in 1996 due to lack of funding. VCI now continues its work through the Cleveland Hometown Association in Israel. The collection consists of activity records, correspondence, directories, membership lists, and newspaper clippings.
