At the Nov. 16 meeting, the Friends of the Maltz Museum elected a slate of four officers. Jeff Kaplan, a University Heights resident, was elected president; Wayne Malz, vice president; Candy Anker-Roehl, a Cleveland Heights resident, secretary; and Merna Wolfe, treasurer.

The Friends of the Maltz Museum is a new group of volunteers who engage in educational and charitable fundraising activities for the museum. In the past year, the group has run the Cleveland's Funniest Rabbi contest, the Jewish Food and Culture Festival, a speakers bureau, and several interfaith Shabbat dinners, which have raised more than $9,000 for programs and initiatives at the museum.
