The Maltz Museum opened on October 11, 2005. It is unduplicated anywhere in America, engaging visitors of diverse backgrounds while building bridges of understanding in an increasingly complex world.

Hillel quote

On Sunday September 26, 2010 a sold out crowd attended the 5th anniversary celebration of the Museum.

The evening featured the first Maltz Museum Heritage Award which was given to honor seven generations of the Gries Family, Cleveland's first Jewish settlers, and members of three generations will be present led by Museum Trustee and Community Leader Bob Gries.

After cocktails & hors d'oeuvres, there was an elegant sit-down dinner with great live entertainment by the Capitol Steps from Washington DC. Museum Co-Founder Milton Maltz and Executive Director Judi Feniger spoke.

The award presentation was led by Museum Trustee Albert Ratner and the crowd heard inspiring words from Andrea Bestor, winner of a $50,000 college scholarship in the Museum's 2010 Stop the Hate: Youth Speak Out! Essay Contest.
