Museum Matters: May 2019

Where It’s Always May

Thirteen years ago, Congress and the President established May as National Jewish Heritage Month. The concept paralleled the established months to honor African-American, Hispanic American and other cultures in our diverse national quilt. This month we will indeed feature several programs addressing the Jewish immigrant experience and the intersection between the Holocaust and American life.

But, of course, the same can be said for June, July, and August. Jews have lived in North America for more than 350 years – way too much story to cover in just 31 days. So next winter when it is 5 below zero in February, just say “I’m going to the JMM, because there it’s always May!”


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.
