J. Wandres documents the life of 1944 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Lt. Paul Shulman who was one of only fifty Jewish midshipmen commissioned in his class during World War II. After leaving the U.S. Navy and returning to civilian life, Shulman volunteered to help the Haganah, the paramilitary force of the Jewish Agency for Palestine headed by David Ben-Gurion. Wandres’ book fully details Shulman’s role in helping to launch the navy of new Israeli nation and is based on interviews and correspondence with former U.S. Navy shipmates and Machal volunteers, Israeli and American archives, and declassified Secret U.S. Department of State documents.  This program will be held at the Edward Myerberg Center, 3101 Fallstaff Road, 410-358-6856.  Program is being co-sponsored by the Baltimore Zionist District and Edward Myerberg Senior Center.

Diner & Donuts!

Attend a free screening of local writer/director Barry Levinson’s classic Baltimore film, Diner, in the Hodson Hall Auditorium at the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus and enjoy donuts in celebration of Chanukah.  Check out the exhibit – Jews on the Move: Baltimore and the Suburban Exodus, 1945 – 1968, which explores the local story of one community’s swift transformation from urban to suburban. 

This exhibit is a collaborative project of the Jewish Museum of Maryland and students in the Program in Museums and Society. It was made possible through a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
