1Title:  Florence S. Shapero Dancing School Photographs     
 Creator:  Florence S. Shapero Dancing School 
 Dates:  1920-1960 
 Abstract:  Florence S. Shapero (1897-1970) was the premier children's dance and social graces instructor in the Jewish community of Cleveland, Ohio, for forty years. A daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants who arrived in the United States in 1891, she received her schooling in Cleveland, graduting from Central High School ca. 1915. Following her graduation, Shapero pursued ballet training in New York City. She returned to Cleveland in the 1920s, opening her first studio in 1929 in rented space in the Masonic Hall at 1949 East 105th Street. She remained in this studio which was close to the heavily Jewish population area of Glenville until the population shifts to the suburbs in the late 1940s and early 1950s. By 1952, Shapero had relocated to Cleveland Heights, where much of Cleveland's Jewish population had resettled. She maintained a studio in the Masonic Temple at 1633 Lee Road and continued teaching dance and the social graces which accompany it until her death almost twenty years later in 1970. The collection consists of sixty-three black-and-white prints, one of which is a hand-tinted portrait. Twenty-five of the prints are oversize. The bulk of the collection consists of group portraits of classes from the 1940s and 1950s.

2Title:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland 
 Dates:  1939-2002 
 Abstract:  The Workmen's Circle of Cleveland (f. 1904) is a secular Jewish fraternal organization formed in the United States to perpetuate Yiddish language and culture, support and promote the 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. Branch 1030, one of a number of Cleveland, Ohio, branches, was the first English speaking branch and was founded in 1939. 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. These programs have had difficulty attracting members since the proliferation of health maintenance organizations and health insurance plans. The collection consists of correspondence, ledgers, membership lists, minutes, and newsletters relating to Branch 1030. Also in the collection are regional records, and national office constitutions, correspondence, and reports.

3Title:  Beth Am Congregation Records     
 Creator:  Beth Am Congregation 
 Dates:  1934-1999 
 Abstract:  Beth Am Congregation, a Conservative Jewish congregation in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, was founded in 1933 as the Community Temple by Rabbi Abraham Nowak and a group who belonged to B'nai Jeshurun Congregation (then known as Temple on the Heights). The founders wanted their new synagogue to be more welcoming to all Jews, regardless of their wealth or status. The congregation established administrative offices at 241 Euclid Avenue; services and school classes were held at Coventry School in Cleveland Heights. After meeting at several rented locations, the congregation purchased a large house on Washington Boulevard. By 1940, however, the need was seen for a permanent structure, and a building fund was established. In 1947 Beth Am purchased the Trinity Congregational Church at 3557 Washington Boulevard. The new rabbi, Jack J. Herman, was named the same year. The congregation continued to grow, and by 1956 had 600 families with 500 students in the religious school. A fire in 1957 destroyed much of the lower level of the building, including two Torahs and synagogue records; the congregation met on the campus of John Carroll University until repairs were effected. Rabbi Herman served the congregation until his death in 1969. Rabbi Michael Hecht was installed late in 1970. In 1971 the congregation dedicated a new religious school named for Rabbi Herman, constructed on land adjacent to the synagogue. From 1974 through the congregation's merger with B'nai Jeshurun in 1999, there were financial deficits that made it difficult for the congregation to sustain itself. The Jewish community was moving farther east, and membership decreased. A congregant offered land at the intersection of Cedar and Lander Roads in Mayfield Heights, provided that the membership could raise the monies necessary for a new building. In spite of a positive feasibility study, and plans unveiled by the architectural firm Finegold Alexander and Associates, the fundraising goals were not met and Beth Am sold its Washington Boulevard Building to the New Bible Fellowship Church and merged with B'nai Jeshurun Congregation in 1999. The collection consists of minutes, correspondence, financial reports, lists, newspaper clippings, and publications.

 Dates:  1954-2000 
 Abstract:  Beth Israel - The West Temple (f. 1954) is a Reform Jewish synagogue located in Cleveland, Ohio's west side. A noted feature of this congregation is its volunteerism.

This included the principal, administrator, teachers, and aides of the religious school; the librarians, office managers and secretaries; youth group advisors; and interfaith and community education coordinators. Approximately one-third of the congregation made this commitment to volunteer several hours a week throughout the year. Another fifteen percent of the congregation volunteered periodically throughout the year serving as choir director, choir members, and music accompanist; worship leaders and cantors; bulletin editors; and building repair and maintenance workers. The collection consists of minutes, bulletins, correspondence, reports, handbooks, newspaper clippings, program scripts, speeches, and transcripts.
