The depth of Maryland’s Jewish heritage is reflected in its wide range of synagogue architecture.   With a history extending from the early settlement of German Jews to the influx of Russian Jews, to a post-war suburban population, this presentation explores the evolution from traditional revivalist styles to modern functional design, drawing on examples in Baltimore City and Montgomery County.


Clare Lise Kelly, retired M-NCPPC Architectural Historian, is the author of Montgomery Modern: Modern Architecture in Montgomery County, Maryland, 1930-1979, and recipient of the Paul H. Kea medal for Architectural Advocacy, the highest honor of AIA Potomac Valley, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects.


As part of the 2019 Doors Open Baltimore festival, take a special tour of the historic Lloyd Street Synagogue with an architecture focus! Admission on October 6th is FREE.
