 Abstract:  The Montefiore Home is a Jewish nursing home for aged and infirm Jews of Cleveland, Ohio. It was founded in 1882 as the Aged and Infirm Israelites Home, was renamed the Sir Moses Montefiore Kesher Home for Aged and Infirm Israelites in 1884, and, in 1923, Montefiore Home. In the 1940s, Montefiore converted from providing residential care to social and psychological rehabilitation, including day care, social workers, a psychiatric unit, and sheltered workshop. An Auxiliary was formed in 1956-57 to help support Montefiore. In 1991 Montefiore, now a skilled nursing facility, moved to a new $22 million, 240-bed complex in Beachwood, Ohio. the collection consists of individual and group portraits of residents and staff, and views of facilities and activities of the Montefiore Home. Included are views of the original home at Woodland Avenue and East 55th Street, as well as the facility at 3151 Mayfield Road, Cleveland Heights. Included are portraits of past presidents and board members, including Jacob Rohrheimer, Jacob Mandelbaum, and R. Julius Weil.
