Jews on the Move: A Conversation

April 3, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

 Thursday April 3rd at 7:30 p.m.


Beth Israel Congregation


3706 Crondall Lane, Owings Mills, MD 21117


Historians call it a “suburban exodus.” In a single generation, Baltimore’s Jewish community left older neighborhoods for greener pastures along Liberty Road, Reisterstown Road, Park Heights, and Greenspring Avenue. Were you or your family part of the exodus? Join Dean Krimmel, exhibit curator, for a behind-the-scenes look at Jews on the Move — and a conversation about your family’s place in this classic American Jewish story.


Dean Krimmel served as consulting curator for Jews on the Move, working with the Jewish Museum of Maryland exhibit team and Johns Hopkins University undergraduates.  Dean is a museum consultant with 30-plus years of experience connecting audiences to Baltimore history through exhibits, programs, bus and walking tours, and cultural documentation projects. Raised in northwest Baltimore, first in Grove Park and later near Pimlico race track, Dean spent 14 years at the Baltimore City Life Museums where he supervised the museum reference center before becoming Curator of Local History.
