A Goodbye to Summer

Posted on September 24th, 2012 by

The New Year has begun and the calendar has declared it officially fall. While I’m all for cooler weather and warm beverages, it’s always fun to look back at the summer-that-was.

The summer started with a bittersweet note - a farewell party for former executive director Avi Decter.

We welcomed over a DOZEN interns for the summer!

Kayam Farm came out, we made farmers cheese, tasted kosher wine, and talked about Shavous at June's Brews & Schmooze event: Cheese, Cheers, and Celebrations!

We caught a few "Glimpses of Jewish Baltimore" with Gil Sandler.

SuperKids campers spent time in our exhibits and historic synagogues throughout July.

Our partnership with Exeter Gardens moved forward, with building planters...

...planting green things, and painting the space for fun and games.

We got our Havdallah Hoedown on.

The Sol Food Bus traveled up to the Museum for a Family Day...

...and we made butter and jam!

We learned about the history of Jews and baseball with Hank Greenberg.

And celebrated the Olympics with our own intern competition.

We made a LOT of ice cream.

(And ATE a lot of ice cream!)

Really, can you think of a better way to spend the summer? But the fun doesn’t stop just because the leaves are turning! Can’t wait to see you at our upcoming fishy festivities:
