Voices of Lombard Street

Voices of Lombard Street

Jonestown, the area surrounding the JMM, was the center of immigrant Jewish life in Baltimore in the early 1900s. Today only a few remnants of Jonestown’s Jewish past survive. Voices of Lombard Street tells the story of this historic neighborhood from then until now.

The exhibit chronicles a place of constant change, where people of different backgrounds lived, worked, created community—and came together in the renowned Jewish market known as Lombard Street.

The exhibition is currently on display in the JMM’s Shoshana S. and Jerome Cardin Exhibition Gallery.

This 11-minute video shows the exteriors and the interiors of the Lloyd Street Synagogue and B’nai Israel, while giving a brief history of the congregations that worshipped there.
