Sunday, August 24th, 1:00pm

 

with author Rachel Ament

 

The Jewish Daughter Diaries: True Stories of Being Loved Too Much By Our Moms is a hilarious, and heartfelt essay collection about Jewish mothers, featuring essays by prominent writers and entertainers including The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik. Whether the essay features a mom impersonating her daughter on Jdate, a mom who makes half her daughter’s bed while her daughter is still sleeping in the other half, or a mom who takes her camp‐hating daughter on a visit to a “summer camp consultant,” the book is sure to strike a familiar chord in anyone who has been loved too much by their moms.

Members Opening: The Making of The A-Mazing Mendes Cohen

 

Sunday, September 14, 5:00pm

 

Just for members of the Jewish Museum of Maryland and members of our partner The Maryland Historical Society we have a special *free* insider’s evening at the maze. 

 

This will be a chance to not only meet our living history character and explore the exhibit, but also to here from the creative voices who turned a little-known 19th century soldier, businessman and adventurer into a physical experience.  Our panel of experts will delve into the decisions that drove the development of the maze and character – and reveal some of the stories and anecdotes that had to be sent to the “cutting room floor.”  It’s a chance to go behind the scenes of the exhibit process for people who love museums.
