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.

Traveling With Grace: Welcome to our new Tuesday series!

On JMM’s social media, we’ve been sharing #TravelTuesday posts for the last couple of years, starting out with general photographs from the collections of people on vacation, visiting relatives, and sightseeing, then branching out to postcards from lands far and near. For 2018, we decided to do something a little different – (almost) every week we shared a passport from our archives. Where possible we shared additional collection materials related to the owner of the passport (and sometimes other related tidbits or facts). But as the year (and my list of passports) began to wind down, it was time to make a decision: How should the Museum celebrate travel in 2019? Read more.
