Synagogue Night

November 6, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


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.
