VOTE! The Life and Work of Sadie Jacobs Crockin

Exhibition Opening

Sunday 12 December, 12 -4:00 p.m.
FREE

As a woman, an American, and a Jew, Sadie Jacobs Crockin championed many causes.  Throughout her life, she brought women together in organizations that empowered diverse Americans to participate fully in civic life.  Crockin exemplified the college-educated, progressive "New Woman" of her day who joined women's club for self-improvement and to effect social change.  Under her leadership, the Baltimore chapter of the League of Women Voters helped women exercise their newly won right to vote.  She was the founding president of the Baltimore chapter of Hadassah, the first Zionist women's organization.  Once she had firmly established these and other organizations locally, Crockin achieved statewide prominence as an advocate for social justice and women's rights.

CHOSEN FOOD PUBLIC OPENING
12 noon- 4:00 P.M.

For Jews, as for other Americans, food is never just about consumption: food is a means to observe and to celebrate, to maintain tradition and to mark transition, to preserve memory and to produce new meaning. The JMM’S landmark exhibit, Chosen Food: Cuisine, Culture and American Jewish Identity opens up a host of conversations about the history and experience of being Jewish and American in the 21st century.  Join us for the opening event complete with tastings and samples of Jewish foodways from all other the world.
