Jewish Museums Across the Seas: Baltimore
Around the World in 80, 55, 30 Days!: American History Through a Baltimore Lens with the Jewish Museum of Maryland
Originally recorded on Thursday, August 13, 2020 with Marvin Pinkert, JMM Executive Director
Baltimore’s Locust Point was once America’s second largest immigration port, only surpassed by Ellis Island. Discover the importance of Baltimore, Maryland in the story of America’s Jewish community, from waves of arrival, to fights for recognition and religious freedom, and eventual Americanization. Maryland reflects the broader history of America’s Jewish community, and today is home to an important symbol of that history, the Lloyd Street Synagogue, the third oldest synagogue in the country.
This program also took place on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at 10:00pm EST with JMM Deputy Director Tracie Guy-Decker.
