Abstract: Temple Beth El was established in 1950 as a modern Orthodox Jewish congregation in Shaker Heights, Ohio, under the leadership of Rabbi David L. Genuth. A synagogue was constructed in 1957. Due to declining membership, the building and property were sold to the City of Shaker Heights in 1998, and in 1999, Beth El and newly formed Heights Synagogue merged under the name Beth El-Heights Synagogue. The collection consists of birth records, correspondence, deeds, financial statements, lists, minutes, newsletters, sermons, and speeches.
