6Title:  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.

12Title:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources     
 Creator:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources 
 Dates:  1819-1956 
 Abstract:  The Cleveland Jewish History Sources Collection is a card file assembled between 1954-1956 by the American Jewish History Center of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, to support a planned volume on the history of Cleveland, Ohio, Jewry. This intention was realized with the publication of History of the Jews of Cleveland by Lloyd P. Gartner in 1978. Source material for this card file, which covers the span from the early nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, includes both the national Anglo-Jewish press and local Cleveland sources, including the general press, the Anglo-Jewish press, and Jewish communal records. Rabbi Jack J. Herman and Judah Rubinstein were the local Cleveland researchers for the project. The collection consists of 16,000 index cards containing information about Cleveland's Jewish community that was obtained primarily from newspapers. These cards have been arranged into fourteen broad categories: Arts; Charities; Clubs and Societies, Various; Community Services; Economic Life; Education; Political Affairs; Population; Sermons and Lectures; Social Life; Synagogues; Synagogue Related; Umbrella Organizations, and Zionism. Within these categories, primary and sometimes secondary sub-headings are arranged alphabetically and then chronologically. As prescribed by the AJHC, each research finding was typed on 4x6, un-ruled index cards and described in the following top-down order: top left, the city and chronological period; top right, topical classification; single line description of the finding; excerpt(s) from the finding. In many instances, the researchers stapled to the card photocopies of pertinent portions of the source material. The collection, however, contains exceptions to this general procedure: a number of 3x5 cards with handwritten entries (evidently, unprocessed research findings) and a number of 4x6 cards with attached paper negative photocopy, i.e., white-on-black and mirror-image text.
