This past Sunday we enjoyed Jewish Journeys: A History of Migration, a truly excellent program with engagement officer Emma Crew of the Jewish Museum London. While we won’t be able to make a recording of this program available, you do have a second chance to see it if you’re willing to get up a little (ok, a lot) early on Thursday, August 20th!
Emma’s program inspired us to take a look in our own collections for London-related material. Turns out, we have quite a few souvenir images from Jewish Baltimoreans visiting our neighbors across the pond.
After this bit of British site-seeing, we figured, why not check out South Africa in preparation for this Sunday’s program, South African Jewry: Before, During, After with Gavin Morris of the South African Jewish Museum. While our findings are not quite as tourist-centric, we do have a couple relevant collections items!
