The Jewish Museum of Maryland in Baltimore is considered one of the finest Jewish museums in the United States. Founded in 1960 as part of an effort to restore the historic Lloyd Street Synagogue next door, the museum tells the story of Jewish life in America with special attention on Judaism in Maryland.
