The Maltz Museum features a rich selection from The Temple Museum of Religious Art’s important collection of art and artifacts. Established on March 1, 1950, by Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver in honor of The Temple’s 100th anniversary, The Temple Museum of Religious Art includes ritual objects, sacred books and scrolls, and fine art from all over the world. It is the fourth oldest museum of Judaica in the United States.
Fridays @ 2pm: Themes of the Holocaust. The Holocaust stands as a defining moment of the 20th century, arguably the most violent century in history. Artifacts, photographs, and filmed testimonials of local survivors introduce visitors to various aspects of the Holocaust. Explore difficult but relevant content, such as:
- The rise of modern anti-Semitism and history of Jewish hate
- How local economic depression, nationalism, and militarism made state-sponsored mass murder possible
- The tactics and psychology of propaganda
- The behavior of individuals under extreme conditions
Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Sunday (starting July 24) @ 3pm. What happens when the last Holocaust survivor is no longer with us? Who will tell their story? The Maltz Museum is launching a first-of-its-kind effort in Cleveland to preserve Holocaust memory. Starting this July you can be part of the beta test of Stanley Bernath, a local Holocaust survivor, whose story has been memorialized as an interactive biography. Join us as we explore what it means to hear from and interact with hologram technology on a screen in our theater.
