Houdini Comes Alive

June 25 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Harry Houdini wasn’t born. He was invented.


The world’s most famous magician began life as Erik Weisz, the son of a Hungarian rabbi. In 1878 immigration to the U.S. transformed Erik Weisz into Ehrich Weiss. It was the first of many transformations for the man who would become the first international superstar. Join us for this magical performance with magician David London as he takes us back in time to truly discover the world’s first superstar.



JMMSquared: The Jewish Museum of Maryland and the Jewish Museum of Milwaukee come together to present a unique pairing of programs, only made possible by our current challenging situation. This pair of programs celebrates the ways in which we have been able to successfully work together to bring to both Baltimore and Milwaukee some of our most popular exhibits of recent years including Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini and Stitching History from the Holocaust.


Program 1: Backstage: The Making of Exhibits on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 7:30pm EST.

During this unprecedented time, the Jewish Museum of Maryland is proud to work with our colleagues at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee to provide this meaningful online program.


Donations to help us continue to serve you—from a safe distance—are appreciated, but not required. All donations will be split evenly between JMM and the Jewish Museum of Milwaukee. You can donate here.
