Driving Tour of Jewish Baltimore

The tour begins on Baltimore’s East Side and retraces the migration route of the early Jewish immigrants who initially settled (in the mid 19th century) in East Baltimore. The route moves north and westward through the city and into the suburbs. Along the way, participants see and experience the development of Jewish life in Baltimore and the metropolitan region. The tour includes sacred, educational, recreational, and social sites of Jewish interest. Please note that this is not intended to be a comprehensive tour of all Jewish neighborhoods. Instead it is designed to follow a specific path of migration and to bring certain neighborhoods back to life.

The Jewish Museum of Maryland gratefully acknowledges Gilbert Sandler and Efrem Potts for their guidance in creating this bus script. In addition, a special thank you is owed to Willa Banks for providing additional research.

This driving tour uses Google Maps. Please click on the map or link below to learn about all of the different stops along the way. Next week, we will post a walking tour of East Baltimore.
