Title: L’Dor VaDor: Remembering the Cleveland Jewish immigration experience
Author: Feldman, Roxanne
Abstract: Jewish people heavily contributed to the growth and development of the city of Cleveland. Their impact extended from creating major businesses to influence in education and culture. Jewish immigration, an integral piece of Cleveland’s history, offers many memories that constitute an interactive, educational, and engaging exhibit. The goal of this interactive project is to inform users about what life was like as a Jewish immigrant or resident in Cleveland by sharing stories of individuals in the community and in my family. Through exploration of photographs, videos, and an interactive map, users will be able to identify noteworthy businesses, organizations, and people and follow the expansion of the Jewish community in the Cleveland area. Understanding how Jewish people have contributed to the growth of the city will allow visitors to gain an appreciation for the diversity and overall impact of Jews across the country.
