Walking Tour of East Baltimore

Last week, we provided a driving tour of Jewish Baltimore. This week, we're adding a walking tour of the neighborhood surrounding the Jewish Museum of Maryland. Planning on coming to Brews and Schmooze on Wednesday, August 5th from 6 - 8pm? Maybe consider coming a little early to take this self-guided tour!

About the Tour:
Through this self-guided walking tour, The Jewish Museum of Maryland encourages you to take a fresh look at the old East Baltimore Jewish immigrant neighborhood known today as Historic Jonestown.

At first glance you might think there is little to see beyond the Museum’s two historic synagogues and the Lombard Street delicatessens. We invite you to discover what has survived and learn about what hasn’t by navigating the neighborhood with these directions.

This tour was created in connection with the Festival of Maps Program through Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance and the Mayor & City Council of Baltimore City. It has been adapted by Ilene Dackman-Alon and Deborah R. Weiner from Dean Krimmel’s Jewish East Baltimore: A Walking Tour for the Jewish Museum of Maryland.
