1Title:  United Jewish Religious Schools Records     
 Creator:  United Jewish Religious Schools 
 Dates:  1899-1970 
 Abstract:  The United Jewish Religious Schools (Cleveland, Ohio) trace their origins to the Council Religious School, organized by the Cleveland Council of Jewish Women in 1894 to provide a Sabbath school for immigrant children. In 1901, several congregations joined the Council of Jewish Women in funding the school, and in 1918 high school classes were established. In 1928, the Jewish Welfare Federation of Cleveland included the Council Schools in its budget. In 1947, the Council Schools, along with 6 branches, were renamed the United Jewish Religious Schools and became affiliated with the Bureau of Jewish Education. As the Jewish population moved to the suburbs, the Schools closed branches and established new ones. In 1970, three branches remained. The collection consists of board of trustee minutes, reports, budgets, and correspondence; and subject files including bulletins, correspondence, studies, reports, enrollment lists, financial records, histories, teaching materials, and staff lists.
