The area surrounding the Jewish Museum of Maryland was the center of immigrant Jewish life in Baltimore in the early 1900s, but today only a few remnants of its Jewish past survive. Voices of Lombard Street tells the story of this historic neighborhood from then until now.
The exhibition chronicles a place of constant change, where people of different backgrounds lived, worked, created community—and came together in the renowned Jewish market known as Lombard Street. The exhibition is currently on display in the JMM’s Shoshana S. and Jerome Cardin Exhibition Gallery.
