The origin of Cleveland’s Jewish community began interestingly enough in the small Bavarian town of Unsleben. In 1839, a party of 18 Jews made the difficult trip across the Atlantic in order to join one of their townsmen, Simson Thorman. He had settled in the small – but bustling – commercial village located at the mouth of the Cuyahoga. Explore the Willett Street Cemetery – Cleveland’s oldest Jewish burial ground – founded in 1840.
