In Baltimore and throughout the United States, earlier generations of American Jews made much of novelty and of being up-to-date, especially when it came to what they wore.  In her illustrated talk, Jenna Weissman Joselit, noted Tablet columnist and Charles E. Smith Professor of Judaic Studies & Professor of History at  George Washington University, explores the hold that fashion has held on the collective American Jewish imagination ever since the 19th century.


This program is presented in relation to the Fashion Statement exhibit, on view April 7 – September  15,2019. Tickets to public programs include admission to the Museum.
