1Title:  Jewish Community Center of Cleveland Photographs, Series II     
 Creator:  Jewish Community Center of Cleveland 
 Dates:  1929-1992 
 Abstract:  The Jewish Community Center of Cleveland was formed in 1948 by the merger of the Council Educational Alliance (established 1899), Camp Wise (established 1907), the Jewish Young Adult Bureau (established 1939), and the Cultural Department of the Jewish Community Council (established 1945), for the purpose of providing recreational social and cultural programs to the Jewish community of Cleveland, Ohio. By 1959 the center moved from Cleveland to the suburb of Cleveland Heights. The collection consists of individual portraits, including Myron Guren, the first president of the Jewish Community Center (JCC), and Herman Eigen, its executive director. Group portraits include a Council Educational Alliance women's group. Photographic views reflect JCC's activities in several areas, including the resettlement of Jews from the former Soviet Union in the 1970s; the Jewish Youth Council, a politically active high school group; and the cultural arts programs of the JCC, including folk dancing, dances, exhibits, holidays, annual meetings, programs, and theater productions. Images of preschoolers include holiday preparations. The photographs of the annual Israel Independence Day parades provide views of Taylor Road in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Also included are views of Camp Wise in the 1930s and 1930s.
