Not just for people of the Jewish faith but for those interested in the history of east side Cleveland. The museum also does compelling exhibits that have included the Dead Sea Scrolls and quilts from the Holocast.

This museum not only can give you an insight on Judaism, but has special exhibits. Also, a wonderful exhibit on the holocaut.

A great way to spend a weekend afternoon. There are a lot of different exhibits. I thought it would be bigger on the inside but interesting overall.
