The Hebrew High School at BHU

Posted on July 18th, 2012 by

A blog post by Archives Intern Leslie McNamara.

As an Archival intern at the JMM, a major project that I am working on this summer is processing a good portion of archival documents from Baltimore Hebrew University (BHU).  In 2009, the University System of Maryland Board of Regents voted unanimously on the merger of BHU with Towson University.  As a result, the JMM acquired BHU’s collection of archival documents.  Due to the massive amounts of documents from BHU, this collection is still a work in progress.  A good portion of the documents that I am processing are from the Hebrew High School Division of BHU.  An interesting aspect of these documents is the formation of the Hebrew High School Division which was led and supported by the Jewish community of Baltimore.

During the initial planning of the Hebrew High School, the Jewish community used other Jewish day schools across the country as models.

 

 

In particular, the Jewish community used the Charles E. Smith Day School of Rockville, Maryland as their prime model.

Dr. Leivy Smolar, the president of BHU, recognized the need of aHebrewHigh School.

Also, Dr. Smolar believed that BHU had the facilities to provide for such a massive project.
