Synagogue Night


Thursday, November 6th, 2014 at 6:00pm


Keynote Speaker: Dr. Gary Zola, American Jewish Archives


This event is for JMM Members* and by invitation only


Just over five decades ago the Jewish community came together to save the crumbling Lloyd Street Synagogue and lay the foundation for the Jewish Historical Society of Maryland and later the Jewish Museum of Maryland (JMM).   We are commemorating the 50th anniversary of the public re-opening of the building in November, 1964.  Since so many Baltimore synagogues have their origins among the congregants  and “dissidents” of this oldest Maryland shul, we have declared November 6th to be Synagogue Night at JMM.


IMG_9667-36 headThe evening will feature a keynote address by Dr. Gary Zola, Executive Director of the American Jewish Archives.  Dr. Zola will speak on “Profiles in American Jewish Courage”.  The program will begin in the Lloyd Street Synagogue at 6:30p.m.


Following the program light kosher refreshments and wine will be served and you will be invited to visit the museum, including our newest exhibit The A-Mazing Mendes Cohen.


Please rsvp to Trillion Attwood at tattwood@jewishmuseummd.org by October 31.


*we will accept new memberships through the evening of the event.


This event is invite only, however if you are a religious or lay leader of a synagogue in the area and you have not received an invite please contact Trillion Attwood directly at 410-732-6402 x215 or email tattwood@jewishmuseummd.org.

Lloyd Street Synagogue Anniversary


November 9th


10am to 5pm Kristallnacht display


1pm Baltimore Museum of Industry Presentation


3pm Technology in the Temple


Help us commemorate the 50th anniversary of the rededication of the Lloyd Street Synagogue with a day that will reveal  unexplored sides of the synagogue. We have developed a new tour of the historic Lloyd Street Synagogue, Technology in the Temple. Inspired by our latest exhibit, The A-Mazing Mendes Cohen, the tour will delve into how the technological revelations of Mendes’ lifetime led to the development of this historic landmark. The tour will take place at 3:00pm. If you are unable to attend the tour that day, it will be our Sunday and Monday 3pm tour for the duration of The A-Mazing Mendes Cohen.


We will also be welcoming the Baltimore Museum of Industry for a presentation Mendes’ Baltimore: The Industries that Built a City, which will explore the wider story of the importance of technology in the development of Baltimore.


Our anniversary coincides with the anniversary of Kristallnacht. We are excited to be welcoming Martin Levin Artistic Creations to the museum for a display of his Kristallnacht series. Levin has meticulously recreated the facades of these once wonderful buildings in miniature format. Come and view his series of beautiful handmade synagogues, plus see his two local latest additions, the Lloyd Street Synagogue and B’nai Israel.
