1Title:  Rabbi Israel Porath Papers, Series II     
 Creator:  Porath, Israel 
 Dates:  1910-1974 
 Abstract:  Rabbi Israel Porath was a leader among Cleveland, Ohio's Orthodox Jewish rabbis for nearly five decades. He served as rabbi of Oheb Zedek congregation for fourteen years. He next served six years as rabbi of another Cleveland congregation, Nvai Zedek. In 1945 he accepted the position of dean of the Salanter Yeshiva in New York City, but returned with a year to Cleveland to become rabbi of the Heights Jewish Center, where he remained until his retirement in 1972. Porath was the founder and chairman of the Orthodox Rabbinical Council and served on the boards of the Bureau of Jewish Education, the Jewish Welfare Federation, the Jewish Community Council, and the B'nai B'rith. His major scholarly contribution was Mavo Ha-Talmud (Outline of the Talmud), published in seven volumes from 1941-1960. The collection consists of correspondence, newspaper clippings, personal records such as a naturalization application and a Brazilian visa, talks and sermons, as well as copyrights and notes for Mavo Ha-Talmud. The collection also includes correspondence, newspaper clippings, and sermons of Samuel Isaac Porath, Israel Porath's eldest son.
