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:  Cleveland Bureau of Jewish Education Records, Series II

 Abstract:  The Cleveland Bureau of Jewish Education was organized in 1924 as the coordinating agency for the following Jewish educational institutions in the Greater Cleveland , Ohio, area: Cleveland Hebrew Schools, Hebrew Academy, United Jewish Religious Schools, Institute of Jewish Studies, Workmen's Circle School, and Yeshivath Adath B'nai Israel. The collection consists of minutes, reports, budgets, and correspondence. The bulk of the collection is from 1960-1970, allowing the researcher to study the effects of rapid secularization and assimilation within the Cleveland, Ohio Jewish community and the efforts by community institutions responding to these forces. Notable documentation on the Cleveland Hebrew Schools, Cleveland College of Jewish Studies, Hebrew Academy, and the Jewish Community Federation is included in these records.
