5Title:  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.

8Title:  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.

9Title:  Women's Centennial Commission Records     
 Creator:  Women's Centennial Commission 
 Dates:  1891-1971 
 Abstract:  The Women's Centennial Commission of Cleveland, Ohio, was founded in 1895 as the Women's Auxiliary of the Cleveland Centennial Commission. The group formally became a part of the Cleveland Centennial Commission on September 25, 1895, when its name was changed to the Woman's Department of the Cleveland Centennial Commission. Mary B. Ingham served as the first president, and Catherine Hitchcock Avery was chairman of the executive board. Woman's Day, a part of the centennial celebration, was held July 28, 1896. In December 1896, an aluminum casket time capsule was filled by members and sealed, to be opened one hundred years later in 1996 during the bicentennial of the founding of Cleveland. The casket was given to the Western Reserve Historical Society for safekeeping. In 1898, the executive committee of the Woman's Department became a permanent organization. Each member designated a successor, and yearly meetings were held. In 1921, a second aluminum casket time capsule was prepared, commemorating the one hundred twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of Cleveland. This casket was not sealed until 1927, so that volume five of the Memorial to the Pioneer Women of the Western Reserve, a project begun in 1896 by the Woman's Department, and edited by Gertrude Van Rensselaer Wickham, could be included. That same year, the name of the group was changed to the Women's Centennial Commission. Continued by the successors of the women of 1896 and 1921, a sealed aluminum casket was placed at the Western Reserve Historical Society during the sesquicentennial celebration of Cleveland in 1946. At the one hundred seventy-fifth anniversary of Cleveland in 1971, a fourth time capsule was prepared. The group was revived as the bicentennial of 1996 approached, and in 1996, the contents of the time capsules were unpacked by lineal descendants of the original members. The collection consists of the contents of four aluminum casket time capsules from the years 1896, 1921, 1946, and 1971. The contents include letters, constitutions and bylaws, minutes, resolutions, financial statements, programs, lists, certificates, cards, photographs, invitations, addresses, speeches, essays, poems, newspaper clippings, magazines, newsletters, newspapers, brochures, directories, bulletins, notes, books, pamphlets, annual reports, yearbooks, biographical and genealogical sketches, business cards, medals, ribbons, coins, flags, badges, a gavel, drawings, watercolor prints, maps, calendars, and a poster. Material from philanthropic, social service, cultural, and religious organizations and agencies of the time is included. Documentation on the formation and organization of the Women's Centennial Commission is included, as is a large amount of personal letters and photographs addressed to their descendants by Commission members. The collection also documents how the Cleveland centennial was planned and celebrated in 1896, and how subsequent anniversary years were celebrated. Original manuscripts and copies of the speeches and toasts given during Woman's Day in 1896 were included in the time capsules.
