1Title:  Educational League Records     
 Creator:  Educational League 
 Dates:  1897-1966 
 Abstract:  The Educational League was initiated by members of B'nai B'rith, Baron de Hirsch Lodge of Cleveland, Ohio, in 1897, as an independent organization whose mission was to provide Jewish orphans with financial aid for higher education. Based in Cleveland and chartered in the State of Ohio, the League's operation covered twenty states in the central United States. Presidents of the League included Martin A. Marks, Dr. Samuel Wolfenstein, Rabbi Moses Gries, and Albert A. Benesch. It's original mission soon expanded to include any Jewish student in need. Money advanced was to be a repayable loan, rather than a grant. Beginning in the late 1920s, the League concentrated exclusively on assisting students from the Cleveland area, or out-ot-town students attending Cleveland area schools. Around the same time, the League joined with the Jewish Welfare Federation of Cleveland and the Cleveland Section, National Council of Jewish Women to coordinate the review and approval of loans. This alliance was known as the Joint Conference on Educational Fund Loans (ca. 1930-1945), and as the Joint Educational Loan Committee thereafter. The collection consists of correspondence, minutes, reports, and beneficiary files. The beneficiary files are arranged alphabetically by last name of beneficiary.

2Title:  Numbers 2000 Records     
 Creator:  Numbers 2000 
 Dates:  1995-1997 
 Abstract:  Numbers 2000 was a Jewish family history project created by Melitz, a Jewish-Zionist educational organization in Israel. The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland (JECC) implemented the program in the Cleveland, Ohio, area in 1993. Numbers 2000 was initially implemented in five congregational schools, and then grew to eight schools the following year. The program was designed to interest students in their Jewish heritage both in and out of the classroom. Projects included finding old family photographs and documents, interviewing relatives, and developing family trees. For one project, students brought a photograph, document, or heirloom to the Western Reserve Historical Society to be photographed. These photographs were developed into slides, with the intention that the slides would become an educational resource for future generations of Cleveland Jews. The collection consists of a slide catalogue, permission slips, and slide document information sheets, which describe the item each child brought to the Western Reserve Historical Society to be photographed. The congregational schools represented in this collection are Bethaynu, B'nai Jeshurun, Fairmount Temple, Park Synagogue, Solomon Schechter Day School, and Temple Emanu El.

3Title:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources, Series II     
 Creator:  Herman, Shoshana 
 Dates:  1953-1958 
 Abstract:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources, Series II includes materials related to the support of a planned volume on the history of Cleveland, Ohio, Jewry. The research for that volume was conducted between 1954 and 1956 and was supported by the American Jewish History Center (AJHC) of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. The planned volume materialized in 1978 with the publication of Lloyd P. Gartner's History of the Jews of Cleveland (Cleveland: Western Reserve Historical Society and Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland, 1978, 1987). MS. 4621, Cleveland Jewish History Sources consists of over 16,000 index cards containing information about Cleveland's Jewish community obtained primarily from newspapers. These cards have been arranged into fourteen broad categories: Arts; Charities; Clubs and Societies, Various; Community Services; Economic Life; Education; Political Affairs; Population; Sermons and Lectures; Social Life; Synagogues; Synagogue Related; Umbrella Organizations, and Zionism. Sources for this information, which cover the span from the early nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, were researched by one team at the AJHC in New York City and another in Cleveland. AJHC researchers culled Cleveland related information from the national Anglo Jewish press; Cleveland researchers Jack Herman (Rabbi, Community Temple) and Judah Rubinstein (subsequently, Research Director, Cleveland Jewish Federation), extracted information from local sources, including the general press, the Anglo Jewish press and Jewish communal records. While MS 4621, Cleveland Jewish History Sources functions as a partial index to the local Jewish press, MS 5111, Cleveland Jewish History Sources Collection, Series II includes background materials for the planned publication project such as correspondence and interviews. In addition, the unpublished papers on aspects of Cleveland Jewish history offer the researcher different perspectives and ideas for other sources.
