Abstract: Shaarey Tikvah Congregation was founded in 1940 in Cleveland, Ohio, by a group of German Jewish refugees. In it first ten years, the congregation met in four different buildings in Cleveland. In 1950, the congregation purchased the Heights Presbyterian Church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. In 1970, the congregation merged with Hillcrest Synagogue (B'nai Israel) and moved to its building in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. The merged congregation was called Mayfield Hillcrest-Shaarey Tikvah B'nai Israel. In 1986, the congregation again moved, to Beachwood, Ohio. The collection consists of a five page typescript history and a 1959 program commemorating the dedication of the bima.
