3rd Grade Visit to Jewish Museum
Our third graders visited the Jewish Museum of Maryland, focusing on the Lomard Street exhibit about life in East Baltimore, the Lloyd Street Synagogue (Maryland’s oldest synagogue building) and the B’nai Israel Synagogue building, original home to Chizuk Amuno Congregation. Students were engaged and very polite as they explored Baltimore’s early Jewish history. We appreciate the help of the parents that joined us on the trip. Before going to the museum, Katherine Lyons presented a “living history” program about the life of a Jewish immigrant in the first half of the twentieth century. In class, we shared the story of the origins of Baltimore’s Jewish community and the first synagogue.
