2Title:  Jewish Secular Community of Cleveland Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Jewish Secular Community of Cleveland 
 Dates:  1967-2012 
 Abstract:  The Jewish Secular Community of Cleveland, Ohio (f. 1967), is a group whose members share with other Jews a common history, literature, culture, and tradition without necessarily having a belief in God. The group's founding members were drawn together by their desire to offer their children a Jewish education outside of the existing religious institutions and their earliest efforts were focused upon the development of a school. By the mid-1970s, however, adult education, holiday observances, and life cycle ceremonies had been introduced and a social action committee had been formed. The collection consists of board meeting minutes, newsletters, membership rosters, curriculums, and programs from events the organization has hosted, as well as a collection of the papers of Mark Weber, one of the group's most active members. This collection is of value to researchers studying ethnic and religious groups and institutions in the United States in general, and in Cleveland, Ohio, in particular. Of interest are minutes from the Jewish Secular Community board meetings, and newsletters, all of which discuss the current status of the organization and express thoughts about the future of the organization as well as events the Community celebrated. Also included are curricula for the group's school, illustrating the principles of secular humanism. Those interested in secular Jewish culture in Cleveland and the formation and expression of Jewish identity during the twentieth century will find this collection of value.

3Title:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland Records, Series III     
 Creator:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland 
 Dates:  1916-2004 
 Abstract:  The Workmen's Circle of Cleveland, Ohio (f. 1904) is a secular Jewish fraternal organization formed in the United States to perpetuate Yiddish language and culture, support and promote a liberal political agenda, offer both health and death benefits, and provide a meeting place for fellowship. Its Yiddish cultural programming includes lectures, readings, concerts, third Passover Seders, and the I.L. Peretz Workmen's Circle School, a supplementary program for children. Following World War II and the Holocaust and the continuing acculturation into American life of the descendants of its Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrant founders, the Workmen's Circle, in Cleveland and nationwide, has been experiencing significant and continuous loss of membership. The Workmen's Circle's group health plan and death benefits, both of which are available on a non-sectarian basis, are the major source of membership. The collection consists of correspondence, ledgers, membership lists, minutes, and programs.
