Museum Matters: April 2019


1. A piece of cloth at the end of a bolt. Usually not enough to make a complete project.

2. A surviving trace

As April turns our thoughts to Passover and Yom HaShoah, we are reminded of the fact that today’s Jewish community is indeed a remnant — the part that survived the Pharaohs, the Inquisition, the pogroms, the Holocaust, and dozens of other persecutions large and small. We are the remnant as well of the millions who lost their identity through assimilation, both forced and voluntary.

Yet the pair of exhibits that opens this weekend demonstrates that there is still enough cloth on our bolt to make a few projects. In Stitching History from the Holocaust, creativity lost is found again. In Fashion Statement, we explore the diversity of the Jewish experience in Maryland through the language of clothing. We invite you to join us as we celebrate what has survived.


Upcoming programs
All programs take place at the Jewish Museum of Maryland unless otherwise noted. Please contact our Programs Manager at / 443-873-5177 with any questions or for more information.

Esther’s Place

This April at Esther’s Place, our shelves are bursting with color, creativity, and memory. Our Passover merchandise includes meaningful and whimsical Haggadot, beautiful children’s books, unique Judaica and Seder table items, adorable toys, and more. On April 7, we’ll introduce books, wearables, DIY projects, and important stories of creative talent in connection with exhibits Fashion Statement and Stitching History from the Holocaust. In particular, we are honored to offer catalogs and notecard sets from Jewish Museum Milwaukee exploring the designs of Hedy Strnad, the inspiration for Stitching History from the Holocaust.
