The Jewish Museum of Maryland always has one or two-or even three-exhibition projects in development. It’s a big job, and you can help! If you have stories to tell, or objects, photographs, and memorabilia to lend that are related to any of the topics listed below, we want to hear from you.
In the summer of 2017, we will open an exhibition on Jewish weddings, focusing on celebrations in Maryland in the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. In addition to wedding gowns, we’ll feature invitations, ketubot, accessories, groom and attendant outfits, photos, and other items related to ceremonies both fashionable and traditional. We have some fabulous material in our collections, but we’d love to include even more! If you have wedding-related clothing, souvenirs, or photographs to lend or donate, please let us know. We’re particularly interested in material from outside Baltimore; from before 1900 and after 1950; items related to Jewish marriage traditions; and unusual stories.
