Fun for the whole family!

Family Game Day!

Sunday, April 20th 11:00am to 3:00pm

Join us for a fun day of gaming for the whole family! We will have a whole range of games waiting to be played suitable for any age. Play one of the old favorites or learn something new as a family.

We will of course have Mah Jongg available, in honor of our newest exhibit Project Mah Jongg. Staff will be on hand to teach any novices and for those younger players, we can also teach our slightly adapted version, still plenty of fun but not quite as confusing!
Feel free to bring the whole family or come on your own, there will be opponents ready and waiting!


Start: April 20, 2014 11:00 am

Late Night on Lloyd Street: Hungry for Charoset!

Tuesday April 8, 2014 at 6:00pm

 

FREE

 

Come hangout and get hungry for charoset at the Jewish Museum of Maryland! Create, enjoy and devour your very own seder samplings.  Done devouring your charoset creation? Design a spring-themed placemat that will be donated to Meals on Wheels. Charoset is a signature part of the passover seder plate.  Traditionally made with honey, apples, wine and walnuts- this tasty treat is sure to please.  How do you make your charoset? Avocado, banana and agave nectar?

 

Come get hungry for charoset!

 

As with all Late Night on Lloyd Street events there will be plenty of free refreshments. This event is generously supported by the Grandchildren of Harvey M. and Lyn P. Meyerhoff Philanthropic Fund.

Jews on the Move: A Conversation

 Thursday April 3rd at 7:30 p.m.

 

Beth Israel Congregation

 

3706 Crondall Lane, Owings Mills, MD 21117

 

Historians call it a “suburban exodus.” In a single generation, Baltimore’s Jewish community left older neighborhoods for greener pastures along Liberty Road, Reisterstown Road, Park Heights, and Greenspring Avenue. Were you or your family part of the exodus? Join Dean Krimmel, exhibit curator, for a behind-the-scenes look at Jews on the Move — and a conversation about your family’s place in this classic American Jewish story.

 

Dean Krimmel served as consulting curator for Jews on the Move, working with the Jewish Museum of Maryland exhibit team and Johns Hopkins University undergraduates.  Dean is a museum consultant with 30-plus years of experience connecting audiences to Baltimore history through exhibits, programs, bus and walking tours, and cultural documentation projects. Raised in northwest Baltimore, first in Grove Park and later near Pimlico race track, Dean spent 14 years at the Baltimore City Life Museums where he supervised the museum reference center before becoming Curator of Local History.
