1Title:  Cleveland Hebrew Schools Records     
 Creator:  Cleveland Hebrew Schools 
 Dates:  1908-1975 
 Abstract:  The Cleveland Hebrew Schools evolved from the Montefiore Free Hebrew School (later called the Talmud Torah) established in Cleveland, Ohio, ca. 1885. In 1905, another communal Hebrew school was founded by Joshua Flock and Aaron Garber. In 1907, the two schools combined, the name remaining the Talmud Torah. In 1913, the Talmud Torah received an Ohio charter and changed its name to the Cleveland Hebrew School and Institute, enrolling students in grades one through eight. Abraham Hayyim Friedland, an internationally known educator, headed the school from 1921-1939. In 1926, a high school was added, and a Parent Council was organized in 1930. Bernard Levitin served as superintendent from 1944-1970, a period of movement of Cleveland's Jewish population to the suburbs. A reorganization of the Cleveland Hebrew Schools took place during this period, with some Cleveland branches closing and new suburban schools opening. As the number of Jewish day schools and congregational classes grew, the Cleveland Hebrew Schools enrollment dropped and branches were further consolidated. In 1955, the Parent Council organized Camp Oneg, a Hebrew summer day camp, and Ganon Gil Nursery, a Hebrew school for preschool children. In 1967 Cleveland Hebrew High School merged into Akiva High School. The collection consists of staff, enrollment, and financial records, correspondence, board of trustees minutes, legal documents, newspaper clippings, monthly and annual reports, school publications, posters, and scrapbooks.

2Title:  Cleveland Bureau of Jewish Education Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Bureau of Jewish Education 
 Dates:  1925-1992 
 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.
