Abstract: The Hebrew Shelter Home was founded in the late 1800s to provide kosher food and shelter for Russian Jewish immigrants and transient poor in Cleveland, Ohio. It was incorporated as the Independent Montefiore Shelter Home in 1904. By the 1920s it evolved into a way station for Jewish transients. The name was shortened ca. 1970 to the Hebrew Shelter Home. The collection consists of Board of Directors' minutes, statistical summaries and registration cards of guests, a Report of the Superintendent, correspondence, ledgers, monthly financial reports and annual budgets.
