Jewish Volunteer Connection

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.

News & Closures:

The Museum is hiring an Administrative Assistant (PTE): More info here.

Surprising Connections

Sometimes the best way to come up with a potential blog topic is to look up the date your post is due, and let Wikipedia data lead you astray.  For example, here are birthdays for December 12. A quick glance down the list showed me a few familiar names, reminding me that I actually already knew that 12/12 is Frank Sinatra’s birthday, and adding the fun fact that he shares it with his friend Sammy Davis, Jr. . .

Reminder: Our new Monday hours are now in effect! The Museum will open at 11am on Mondays from here on out. Why? Head here to find out.
