MUSEUM MATTERS: OCTOBER 2013

Posted on October 4th, 2013 by

Explore the Civil War You Never Knew

Opening October 12-13!

Opening October 12-13!

It’s almost here.  The Feldman Gallery is bustling with exhibit installers, the packages of education props arrive daily, the docents are learning new scripts and the store is getting new bunting.  In just nine days, Passages through the Fire:  Jews and the Civil War opens at the Jewish Museum of Maryland.  But as a JMM member you only have eight days to wait!  Our exclusive member’s preview starts at 7:30pm on Saturday night, October 12.  The evening features period music by the 2nd South Carolina String Band, along with tours of the exhibit and an “1861 Tour” of the Lloyd Street Synagogue.

Ken Burns tells us that “the Civil War was fought in 10,000 places.”  This fall we remind visitors to Baltimore (and residents alike) that one of those places where the battle of ideas took place 150 years ago was right here.  In the Jonestown neighborhood, in a deeply divided Jewish community, there was an epic struggle for hearts and minds.  Through the lens of our Jewish experience will be casting a new light on the debate over slavery and indeed, on the impact of the entire conflict.

The core exhibit comes to us from the American Jewish Historical Society and Yeshiva University Museum.  These organizations gathered and curated an extraordinary collection of rarely seen Civil War artifacts, documents and images drawn from the Jewish community.  The exhibit also features interviews with leading scholars on the important trials for Jewish values, before, during and after the War.

JMM has augmented the exhibit with evidence of the Maryland story and new family activity stations.  We are also incorporating our largest Civil War artifact, the Lloyd Street Synagogue and we will be offering special daily tours of that building that focus on life in the Baltimore Jewish community in the 1860s and the way in which the War changed the future of Jewish life here.

The exhibit, which will be on view through February 28, 2014, will also be a jumping off point for a great program schedule.  In addition to Jonathan Karp (opening day, Oct. 13) and Barry Steelman (in conjunction with Free Fall Baltimore, Oct. 20), each of the subsequent months will feature a program subtheme.  In November we’ll have programs on the role of women; in December on the impact of the chaplaincy controversy and Jewish-Christian relations in the War; in January our focus will be on immigration and the Civil War; and in February we celebrate the Jewish relationship with Abraham Lincoln (and honest Abe, himself, will be joining us).  Even our December 25th Mitzvah Day activity – honoring veterans – draws its inspiration from the exhibit.

This is a great exhibit to share with neighbors or co-workers who may have a passion for American history but are unfamiliar with Jewish participation in that history.  If your level of membership entitles you to free passes to the exhibit, it’s time to pull those passes out of the junk drawer and invite your friends to join you for a visit.  You both can explore the Civil War you never knew.

THEIR FLAGNo war in American history has divided the Jewish people as did the Civil War. There were civilian and military Jewish leaders on both sides of this conflict. In some cases, families were split with brothers and fathers fighting against one another. In his talk, Barry Steelman will explore the response of the Jewish communities of America, both North and South, including those that fought to protect THEIR FLAG as well as the individuals and groups that made other significant contributions to their side of this bloody four year period in our history. Learn how Jews fought proudly and with dignity and valor to protect their personal ideals throughout this major struggle.

book cover

Sunday, October 27, 4:00pm

Program FREE with Museum admission

Join us at to hear from M. Hirsh Goldberg, award-winning author of five nationally published books.  His latest book It All Started with a Deli, tells a remarkable story of business and family success. The Attmans name is synonymous with Jewish Baltimore, their deli one of the last remaining on Corned Beef Row, just across the street from the JMM.

It All Started With a Deli charts the history of the Attman family from when the first deli was opened in 1915 by Harry Attman. It shows how the values of hard work, ethical conduct, religious principles and concern for others, instilled by Harry Attman and his wife Ida, into their three sons and future generations have created an astonishingly close, vibrant family whose members have founded major businesses while always giving back to the community.

 ”Few families have contributed so much to our City and State… The Attman story is one worth telling and sharing.” -Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland. 

Following the talk, M. Hirsh Goldberg will sign copies of his book which will be available for purchase in the JMM gift shop.

The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938-1950 closes on Sunday, August 18. Thanks to everyone for making our many superhero themed programs so much fun. We’ve learned about the Jewish origins of superheroes through talks by Dr. Arnold T.
