Maltz Museum Beachwood, Ohio

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage introduces visitors to the beauty and diversity of that heritage in the context of the American experience. It promotes an understanding of Jewish history, religion, and culture and builds bridges of tolerance and understanding with those of other religions, races, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds, serving as an educational resource for Northeast Ohio’s diverse communities. The Stories of Survival: Object. Image. Memory. project shares the legacies behind the everyday objects that become family heirlooms: childhood, home, culture, and religious practice, but also war trauma, displacement, exile, and migration. We invite you to contribute to Your Story, Our Story and share in this project.
