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.

The Museum will be closed on Thursday, November 22, 2018 in observance of the holiday. The offices will also be closed on Friday, November 23, 2018. We will reopen for our regular hours on Sunday, November 25, 2018.

The JMM brings you another exciting culinary championship! This year we take inspiration from both the seasons and Jewish culinary tradition.  As the days grow shorter and the weather becomes colder, no food is more comforting than a great bake. From mandelbrot to bagels, and challah to rye we all have a favorite, almost all of which are improved with a generous schmeer of cream cheese or butter. This year we celebrate those bakes that are often, but not always, improved with a schmeer of something delicious or as we have named them schmeerables.

JMM Insights: Membership Looks Good On You

I think a lot about what it means to belong. Not only is it the subject of a future permanent exhibit, I believe the need to belong (or the rejection of it) drives a great deal of human behavior. At JMM, we tell you stories of Jewish Maryland. Our tales 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.. . . read more.
