Summary

Tiffany’s firm considered the Euclid Avenue Temple a significant commission and photographed the windows for publication. Composite photographs, such as this, were created before the windows were installed, and photographs were used to illustrate "The Memorial Windows in the Euclid Avenue Temple, Cleveland, Ohio," a booklet published by Tiffany Studios for the Temple’s Dedication Services on March 22-24, 1912. Now in the collection of the Western Reserve Historical Society, this richly illustrated booklet bound by a silk cord is an example of how deftly Tiffany Studios marketed decorative objects for American synagogues. When Congregation Anshe Chesed moved to a new temple in 1957, it sold the Euclid Avenue Temple to the Liberty Hill Baptist Church, which kept the Tiffany Studios’ windows in place where they may be seen today.
