|ABBA HILLEL SILVER|
Hillel Silver came to Cleveland in 1917, The Temple was on East
55th Street. Its new home at University Circle, completed in
1924, was his vision. It was there that he preached for nearly
40 years. After the move to Beachwood by the Jewish
Federation of Cleveland (learn
more ...) it is now the last major Jewish facility in the City of Cleveland.
(We also note the West Temple on the west side.)
