Beit Hatfutsot Receives a $10 Million Contribution
The Maltz Family Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, established by Milton Maltz and his wife Tamar, and Ambassador Alfred Moses and his family, have committed a pair of gifts of $5 million each for a combined $10 million to Beit Hatfutsot, The Museum of the Jewish People.
The Maltzs are no strangers to founding and building museums. They were involved in the establishment of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Cleveland, Ohio, and conceptualized and created the International Spy Museum of Washington, D.C.
Alfred Moses, co-chair of the Board of Governors of Beit Hatfutsot, served as liaison to the Jewish community during President Carter’s Administration, has earmarked a $5 million gift to building the Great Hall of Synagogues at Beit Hatfutsot. The Hall of Synagogues will show three millennia of Jewish life with its many faces to serve as inspiration for a vibrant future Jewish life.
