Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage
The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, The Museum of Diversity and Tolerance, is located in Beachwood, Ohio, and opened on October 11, 2005. The Museum’s mission is to reach out to people of all cultures, faiths, races and religions to build bridges of understanding between all people.
In two permanent collections, An American Story and The Temple – Tifereth Israel Gallery, compelling personal stories and oral histories are brought to life by film, computer interactives, special effects and dramatic exhibitions that feature unique artifacts, art, documents and images.
More than 165,000 people visited the Museum in its first three years of operation, including more than 50,000 school children. The Museum raises philanthropic funding for many of these school visits.
Co-founder Milton Maltz’s company, The Malrite Company, was the lead developer. Malrite focuses on the development of innovative museum projects around the country, including the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C
Milton Maltz stated, “The Permanent Collection is the American story. It explores the lives of individuals and their families in terms of their social, cultural, economic and scientific contributions to the region, the nation and the world. The first Jewish immigrants arrived in Cleveland in 1839,” Maltz continued. “The Museum tells their story of achievement through stunning, state of the art exhibits.”
