Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center at Temple–Tifereth Israel is a 1200-seat historic arts and religious venue on the campus of Case Western Reserve University located on the Hough and University Circle border at Silver Park in Cleveland, Ohio.
The converted synagogue serves as the main performance venue of the Case Western Reserve music department and holds campus special events. Silver Hall is still used by the local Jewish congregation for yearly religious and special events.
In 1963, a branch synagogue, Tifereth-Israel, was established in suburban Beachwood, which is now the main place of worship. The congregation now known as The Temple - Tifereth Israel still owns the University Circle building, whose Silver Sanctuary, named for longtime rabbi, Abba Hillel Silver, is still used on the High Holy Days as well as for life cycle events and meetings.
In Mar 2010, Case Western Reserve University and the Temple Tifereth-Israel announced a historic partnership to create the Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center, which was led by a donation of $12 million from the Maltz Family Foundation of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland. The university estimates that the total renovation of the building will require $25.6 million, with an additional $7 million needed for construction of a pedestrian bridge/walkway to connect the building to the university campus. Renovations and conversions were completed in 2015.
Temple Museum of Religious Art
The Temple at University Circle is one of three gallery locations for the Temple Museum of Religious Art, operated by Temple-Tifereth Israel. Other locations include the Temple-Tifereth Israel Gallery at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage and Temple Tifereth-Israel in Beachwood. The museum was founded in 1950 by Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver as part of the 100th anniversary celebration for The Temple-Tifereth Israel.
