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.

Esther’s Place, the JMM shop, will be closed Wednesday, June 12 and Thursday, June 13 for our annual inventory.

We hear about immigrants, refugees, and asylees all over the media – but rarely do we get to hear directly from those coming to America to make a new home. Join us as we welcome Senai Abella Obang and Hari Maya Dhamalatwo individuals who were forced to flee their homes, eventually settling here in Baltimore. They will share their stories of escaping their homeland and the challenges of building a new home in a foreign land.
