Upcoming Exhibitions

Hi! Nice to meet you.

At the Jewish Museum of Maryland, we are storytellers.

We’re also storyfinders, storykeepers, and storyprotectors.

Our tales are stored in 12,000 objects, more than 68,000 photographs, 850 oral histories, two historic synagogues, and three exhibit galleries.

We are finding new stories all the time, and the stories we keep will make you question, make you laugh, make you think and feel deeply—no matter who you are—because it is stories that make us human.

From poignant to whimsical, comfortably familiar to downright bizarre, we find, tell, and protect the stories of Maryland’s Jewish communities.

Besa: Albanian Promises Kept

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 7:00pm
Speakers: Eli Neumann and Benjy Neumann

Albania, a small Muslim-majority country, proved a surprising refuge for the Jewish community of central Europe during the Holocaust. Thanks to Besa, an Albanian concept sometimes translated as “pledge of honor,” and an oath sworn by much of the population requiring individuals to come to the aid of those in need, this country became a safe haven for Jews escaping Nazi persecution.

Immigration in Maryland Today

Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 1:00pm
Get Tickets Now (JMM Members – Reserve Your Seats) or Get Tickets and Reserve a Seat on the Bus

The national conversation around issues of immigration is noisy, impassioned, and complicated. Inspired by our current exhibit Stitching History From The Holocaust—the story of two individuals who lost their lives when they were unable to secure visas to escape Europe—we will explore lessons that could, and should, have been learned from our shared history. Join us for this very special panel discussion examining the local side of this national story with a team of experts who are working closely with Maryland’s newest arrivals.
