Please join us as we take a trip to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage. We will be led on a specific tour of their permanent collection called STOP THE HATE.

America holds the promise of a being a country where “all men are created equal,” yet the reality of life in America has not always reflected this ideal. Learn how racism, ethnocentrism and antisemitism have plagued Cleveland and America since its earliest days. Hear the story of a young African-American Clevelander who shattered Olympic records and Hitler’s racial bias, how a Shaker Heights teen became a victim of international terrorism and how a Cleveland rabbi fought for justice and civil rights. Learn how citizens have come together to fight against discrimination and hatred to build a more tolerant and diverse culture. This is a docent led tour.
