25Title:  Temple-Tifereth Israel Photographs     
 Creator:  Temple-Tifereth Israel 
 Dates:  1870-2008 
 Abstract:  The Temple-Tifereth Israel is the second oldest Jewish congregation in Cleveland, Ohio. The congregation was founded in 1850 after several members of Anshe Chesed, Cleveland's first congregation, left that congregation as the result of a dispute over religious ritual. After implementing religious reforms in the service and hiring a dedicated rabbi for the congregation, Tifereth Israel eventually built the first synagogue for the congregation in 1855 at Huron and Miami Streets. In 1894 the congregation moved to Willson Avenue in the Woodland neighborhood and then to Wade Park on East 105th Street in 1924. The congregation dedicated The Temple Branch in Beachwood in 1969. In 2010 it was announced that the East 105th Street building would be renovated by Case Western Reserve University for use as a performing arts center. The congregation currently makes its home in Beachwood. The collection consists of oversize confirmation photographs. Each individual photograph, except the ones before 1909, depicts individual portraits of each member of the class for the given year. The photographs prior to 1909 are group portraits. Each portrait includes photographs of the rabbis of the congregation at the time, including Moses Gries, Abba Hillel Silver, and Daniel Silver. There are no photographs for 1871-1897, 1952, 1954, 1987 and 1988.

29Title:  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.

31Title:  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.

32Title:  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.

33Title:  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.

39Title:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources     
 Creator:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources 
 Dates:  1819-1956 
 Abstract:  The Cleveland Jewish History Sources Collection is a card file assembled between 1954-1956 by the American Jewish History Center of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, to support a planned volume on the history of Cleveland, Ohio, Jewry. This intention was realized with the publication of History of the Jews of Cleveland by Lloyd P. Gartner in 1978. Source material for this card file, which covers the span from the early nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, includes both the national Anglo-Jewish press and local Cleveland sources, including the general press, the Anglo-Jewish press, and Jewish communal records. Rabbi Jack J. Herman and Judah Rubinstein were the local Cleveland researchers for the project. The collection consists of 16,000 index cards containing information about Cleveland's Jewish community that was 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. Within these categories, primary and sometimes secondary sub-headings are arranged alphabetically and then chronologically. As prescribed by the AJHC, each research finding was typed on 4x6, un-ruled index cards and described in the following top-down order: top left, the city and chronological period; top right, topical classification; single line description of the finding; excerpt(s) from the finding. In many instances, the researchers stapled to the card photocopies of pertinent portions of the source material. The collection, however, contains exceptions to this general procedure: a number of 3x5 cards with handwritten entries (evidently, unprocessed research findings) and a number of 4x6 cards with attached paper negative photocopy, i.e., white-on-black and mirror-image text.
