The Cultural Gardens of Cleveland began with Leo Weidenthal, Editor of the Jewish Independent. Nate Arnold explains how and why Weidenthal got involved and who the other visionaries were.

In this next short video clip, Arnold tells about the migration of Jews to Cleveland. They first came from Germany.

Most of the gardens in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens are named for the country - Italian, Polish, Czech, etc. So why are these gardens called the Hebrew Garden? Nate Arnold explains why they are the Hebrew gardens and not the Jewish or Zionist or even Palestine Gardens.
