Frieda with title

 

Exhibit Opens June 18th, 2017and will be on view through September 17th, 2017.

 

Be our guest as we marry the drama and excitement of a wedding day with the extraordinary collections of artifacts, photos and documents assembled by The Jewish Museum of Maryland.  We promise nostalgia, surprise, humor, insight and a new level of understanding of the meaning and experience of this important social ritual.  From ketubahs to chuppahs and the sound of breaking glass, American Jewish weddings meld the secular with the religious, sometimes in unexpected ways. Just Married! explores how Jewish Marylanders, past and present, express their dual identities as American Jews and Jewish Americans through their weddings.

 

We’re collecting! See a list of items we’re seeking HERE. 

 

In conjunction with this exhibition the JMM is creating an online exhibition, Marrying Maryland, featuring photos and invitations from as many different weddings as we can.  We’re asking Jewish Marylanders to contribute an invitation and photograph from any and all weddings that occurred in Maryland, and had some connection to the Jewish community. Find out more HERE.
