The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage explores history, culture and identity to make connections and to promote a greater appreciation for Jewish heritage and the diversity of the human experience. Using personal stories of courage, creativity and survival we address relevant societal themes. With the aid of films, oral histories, artifacts, historic photographs, first-hand accounts and interactive computer displays, students actively engage with topics such as:

  • the impact of hatred, racism and discrimination and past and present efforts in Northeast Ohio to build a community of tolerance and inclusion;
  • the tragedy of the Holocaust, inspiring stories of its survivors, and behaviors and actions that precipitate genocide;
  • Cleveland’s evolution from an isolated, swampy village to a thriving, modern metropolis;
  • the American immigrant experience and the struggle to hold onto tradition while embracing new opportunities; and
  • the origins behind and meaning of Jewish values, celebrations and rituals.
