6Title:  Jewish Women International, Cleveland Chapter Records, Series III     
 Creator:  Jewish Women International, Cleveland Chapter 
 Dates:  1946-1989 
 Abstract:  Jewish Women International (f. 1897) began in San Francisco to promote social activities among B'nai B'rith families. The first B'nai B'rith auxiliary was founded in 1909, and auxiliaries grew rapidly in the 1920s and 1930s to 178 groups and over 17,000 members reaching a peak in the 1950s with 600 chapters. In 1963 B'nai B'rith Women became an independent organization. The organization's mission has adapted to changing issues facing women, children, and families, including anti-Semitism, reproductive rights, and domestic violence. In 1995 the organization changed its name to Jewish Women International. In Cleveland, Ohio, the first chapter of B'nai B'rith Women was the Heights Chapter #119, founded in 1933, followed one month later by the Cleveland Chapter #121. During the 1930s and 1940s eleven more chapters were created, with one more in the 1950s. In addition, Cleveland chapters assisted in the organization of Women's District Grand Lodge No. 2, which included several midwestern states. The district was headed by Clevelanders Mrs. David Copland in 1936 and Lydia Woldman in 1940. In 1953, Woldman also served as president of the Women's Supreme Council, the national body which coordinated 620 chapters. Declining numbers in the 1980s caused a restructuring of the local chapters, combining twelve chapters into one new chapter, #1736, consisting of 1,500 women. The collection consists of announcements, bulletins, correspondence, budgets, flyers, invitations, lists, minutes, programs, and speeches.

 Dates:  1903-1996 
 Abstract:  Mount Sinai Hospital had its origins in the Young Ladies Hebrew Association for the Care of the Needy Sick, created in 1892 by nine young women in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1900, they changed their name to the Jewish Women's Hospital Association. A 29-bed facility, named Mount Sinai Hospital, opened in 1903 at 2373 East 37th Street. In 1916, a new, larger facility was opened at East 105th Street and Ansel Road. Innovations included outpatient clinics for pediatrics and mental hygiene, established in 1915. A nursing school was included. Mount Sinai affiliated with Western Reserve University for the training and education of its nurses in 1930, and its doctors in 1947. Medical research was given a high priority. The Women's and Junior Women's auxiliaries provided important assistance to the medical staff and patients, including a nursery school for children of nurses and volunteers. Mount Sinai served as a major medical resource for Cleveland's east side throughout its history. Expansion included a twelve-story building and a kidney dialysis center (1960), a new laboratory facility (1970), and an outpatient clinic in the Cleveland suburb of Beachwood (1972). A new medical wing was added to the hospital in the 1980s, and in 1993 an integrated medical campus was opened at the Beachwood facility. In 1996, the nonprofit hospital was sold to a for-profit company, Primary Health Systems (PHS). In March 1999, PHS filed for bankruptcy, and in February 2000, Mount Sinai Hospital closed.

9Title:  Mount Sinai Hospital Records Series III     
 Creator:  Mount Sinai Hospital 
 Dates:  1913-2006 
 Abstract:  Mount Sinai Hospital (1903-2000) had its origins in the Young Ladies Hebrew Association for the Care of the Needy Sick, created in 1892 by nine young women in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1900, they changed their name to the Jewish Women's Hospital Association. A 29-bed facility, named Mount Sinai Hospital, opened in 1903 at 2373 East 37th Street. In 1916, a new, larger facility was opened at East 105th Street and Ansel Road. Innovations included outpatient clinics for pediatrics and mental hygiene, established in 1915.

Mount Sinai served as a major medical resource for Cleveland's east side throughout its history. A new medical wing was added to the hospital in the 1980s, and in 1993 an integrated medical campus was opened in Beachwood. In 1996, the nonprofit hospital was sold to a for-profit company, Primary Health Systems (PHS). In March 1999, PHS filed for bankruptcy, and in February 2000, Mount Sinai Hospital closed. During the demolition of the Mount Sinai building in 2006, workers uncovered a time capsule that had been placed in the cornerstone of the building during construction in 1915. The time capsule held newspapers, fundraising records, and miscellaneous items related to the construction of the building. Throughout the history of Mount Sinai Hospital, female volunteers provided invaluable assistance to the medical staff and patients. The Women's and Junior Women's Auxiliaries created and staffed a nursery school for the children of nurses and volunteers. They offered classes that trained volunteers to work in outpatient clinics and pediatric wards, and, in addition, organized a gift shop and television rental for patients. In 1997, the auxiliaries were renamed the Mount Sinai Community Partners. The Auxiliaries also published a newsletter, "The Chart," documenting their activities. The collection consists of reports, minutes, booklets, financial records, newspapers, quarterly reports, and a scrapbook.

10Title:  Diana Tittle Mount Sinai Medical Center Research Papers     
 Creator:  Tittle, Diana 
 Dates:  1891-2015 
 Abstract:  Mount Sinai Hospital (1903-2000) had its origins in the Young Ladies Hebrew Association for the Care of the Needy Sick, created in 1892 by nine young women in Cleveland, Ohio. The hospital opened in 1903. In 1996, the nonprofit hospital was sold to a for-profit company, Primary Health Systems (PHS). In March 1999, PHS filed for bankruptcy, and in February 2000, Mount Sinai Hospital closed. The closure of Mount Sinai was a significant development in the history of medicine in the Cleveland area and in the history of the Jewish community. Diana Tittle, author of Welcome to Heights High: The Crippling Politics of Restructuring America's Public Schools and other titles, began research on a book documenting the closure of Mt. Sinai in 2004. Amid concerns that the ongoing consolidation of the health care delivery system and the ongoing national health care debate would overshadow her publication, Tittle reached the decision to pursue an alternative use for her research other than publication. This collection preserves her research in its entirety, including primary source materials she collected and extensive notes from numerous oral history interviews. The collection consists of articles, booklets, brochures, correspondence, drafts, indexes, memoranda, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, overviews of specific subjects, reports, a scrapbook, summaries, texts of unpublished material, and other documents related to the donor's work on the history of Mt. Sinai Medical Center.

12Title:  Eleanor Rosenfeld Gerson Family Papers     
 Creator:  Gerson, Eleanor Rosenfeld Family 
 Dates:  1817-1993 
 Abstract:  Eleanor Rosenfeld Gerson continued her family's tradition of activism in Jewish and other educational, philanthropic, and social service organizations in Cleveland, Ohio. She served as a trustee and chairperson of the School on Magnolia, an alternative school, from 1973-1982. In 1985 the school was renamed the Eleanor Gerson School. Other organizations she was active in included the American Civil Liberties Union of Greater Cleveland, the Women's Community Foundation, the Jewish Family Service Association, the Jewish Community Federation, Mount Sinai Hospital, the Free Clinic of Greater Cleveland, the Heights Area Project, and the Cleveland Scholarship Program. Eleanor Rosenfeld married Benjamin Gerson in 1937, and had four children. She was the great-granddaughter of Edward Lazarus and Henrietta Wilmersdorfer Rosenfeld, who had immigrated to New York City from Uhlfeld, Germany in the mid-nineteenth century. Their son, Louis Rosenfeld, married Frederica Fatman, daughter of Joseph Fatman, in 1874. Joseph Fatman and his brother, Aaron, were owners of the firm of Fatman and Company, tobacco dealers. In December 1862, they were among the thirty Jewish merchants ordered out of Paducah, Kentucky, in the Department of the Tennessee by General U.S. Grant's Order Number 11. Eleanor Gerson's parents, Edward Lazarus and Bertha Rosenfeld, moved to Cleveland from New York City in 1925. Edward was an executive in his father-in-law Emanuel Rosenfeld's firm, Grabler Manufacturing Company. He was also active on the boards of many Jewish social service organizations. Bertha Rosenfeld was a founder of the Council of Jewish Women's Jewish Big Sister organization, and was active in other Jewish and women's groups. Bertha's parents, Emanuel and Lena Rosenfeld, came to Cleveland in the 1870s from Germany and were members of Temple Tifereth Israel. Lena Rosenfeld was an active member of the Cleveland Section, National Council of Jewish Women and The Temple's Women's Association. The collection consists of correspondence, legal and genealogical documents, diaries, account books, and newspaper and other clippings of the Rosenfeld, Fatman, and Gerson family members. Of particular interest to Civil War historians are contemporaneous documents relating to General Grant's Order Number 11 which expelled Jews from areas in the jurisdiction of the Department of the Tennessee.
