Volunteer Spotlight on: Ted Cornblatt!
Post by Volunteer Coordinator Wendy Davis. Periodically we highlight one of our fantastic JMM volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with the JMM, send an email to Sue Foard at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 443-873-5162! You can also get more information about volunteering at the Museum here.
Ted Cornblatt is one of JMM’s newest volunteers and a semi-retired attorney who specializes in litigation, primary workman’s comp. When he cut back on his work schedule, he was looking for something meaningful to do. Since he loves history, and especially Jewish history, volunteering at the Jewish Museum of Maryland was a natural fit.
Fortunately for us, Ted has been a docent for our historic synagogues since September 2017. He feels great about his volunteer experience at JMM, finding it exciting to see the way people love going through the synagogues and the “wow” aspect. And he enjoys meeting people from such diverse regions such as Argentina and Singapore to Gaithersburg, Columbia, and Baltimore. The times when he is waiting for a tour to start, Ted says it is nice to sit in the museum library and look through the books that peak his curiosity.
Ted is married and proud of his 8 grandchildren, ranging in age from 6 months to 28 years old. We are so glad that Ted has joined the JMM volunteer family!
