Celebrate your Special Day at the JMM!
As this is the season for graduations, weddings and parties, I thought I would highlight how you can incorporate the JMM into your plans. Our facilities would be perfect for milestone celebrations, wedding ceremonies and receptions, luncheons, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate receptions, holiday parties or meetings. We are only blocks away from Little Italy and the Inner Harbor with free parking nearby. We have several spaces which can be rented including Lloyd Street Synagogue, the Davidson Lobby and the Hendler Board Room.
For those who do not know, Lloyd Street Synagogue is the oldest synagogue in Maryland and the third oldest still standing in the country. In my two years at the museum, we have hosted Bar Mitzvahs in Lloyd Street Synagogue (including the great-great grandson of Rabb Avaham Schwartz who led Shomrei Mishmereth Ha Kodesh beginning in 1908 and remained its leader for the next thirty years). We have also hosted Bat Mitzvah celebrations, meetings, wedding anniversary dinners and even 90s’ themed Purim parties in our lobby.
While we are not able to hold events during Shabbat or during Jewish holidays, our space is generally available to rent before or after public hours, which is before 10 am or after 5 pm Sunday-Thursday. Lloyd Street Synagogue can seat an optimal 150, the Davidson Lobby can hold 75 seated or 150 standing and the Board Room can seat an optimal 20. We can provide 6ft and 8ft tables and black chairs at no additional charge and would also be glad to connect you with a list of kosher caterers.
If you would like to learn more about our rental policies, I would encourage you to visit our website. You can also email me or call 443-873-5167 to discuss availability and pricing. Keep in mind that we offer discounts to small synagogues and non-profits. I would also be more than happy to show you the spaces. We hope that you will consider having your event at the JMM!
