We talk about the size of our collections in linear feet — one linear foot being the size of your typical packing box.? Some of our collections here at the JMM are quite large covering dozens and dozens of linear feet (in the case of the Baltimore Hebrew University archives well over a hundred).? But others are quite small.? We have manuscript collections as small as 0.25 linear feet housed in narrow boxes.? The following collection is one of our small collections just shy of one linear foot.? But large or small each collection in our museum helps us and our researchers tell the story of Jewish life in Maryland.
