Maltz Museum wins Telly Awards


The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage recently received two Telly Awards, the premier award honoring the finest video and film productions.

The museum is the only cultural institution in Northeast Ohio to receive the highest honor, a Silver Telly Award. It was awarded to the Museum’s “Holocaust Survivorsâ€? film. Part of the “World Destroyedâ€? exhibition, the film features Cleveland-area Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren discussing the ongoing impact of the Holocaust in their lives. “Holocaust Survivorsâ€? includes music composed by Ernest Bloch, a former director of the Cleveland Institute of Music.

A second film, “To Be Jewish in the New Millennium,â€? which asks the question “Will there be Jews in the year 3000?â€? was honored with a Bronze Telly. This film examines Jewish religion, practices and culture in the 21st century and features interviews with local members of the Jewish community. Cleveland-based Telos Productions Inc. produced both films.
