1Title:  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.
