3Title:  Ohab Zedek Congregation Records     
 Creator:  Ohab Zedek Congregation 
 Dates:  1920-1991 
 Abstract:  Ohab Zedek Congregation was an Orthodox Jewish congregation founded ca. 1884 and located near the Harvard-Broadway area of Cleveland, Ohio, in what had been Newburgh Village, Ohio, before its annexation to Cleveland in 1873. The congregation was housed at various locations in this neighborhood until 1909, when they moved into their own building on Homestead Ave. In 1895 the congregation acquired a section of the Lansing Cemetery, located at Lansing Ave. and East 58th St. Isolated from the centers of major Jewish settlement in Cleveland, and sustained by only a small local Jewish population, Ohab Zedek struggled during the Depression to survive. In 1933, the congregation sold its synagogue. In 1976, an elderly surviving member of Ohab Zedek arranged with Heights Jewish Center to undertake custodianship of the Ohab Zedek section of the Lansing Cemetery. The collection consists of two interment record scrolls (ca. 1920s) which provide a diagram of the location of the grave sites of the section of the Lansing Cemetery belonging to Ohab Zedek, a copy of a cemetery maintenance agreement (1976), and a history of Ohab Zedek compiled by Lou Rosenblum. The history includes a description of the Harvard-Broadway area during Ohab Zedek's lifetime, a description of the occupations of members of Ohab Zedek, and a map showing the location of the businesses of members of Ohab Zedek.
