Exploring Jewish Immigration: A Walking Tour in Bolton Hill and Reservoir Hill

June 4 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm | Register
Median Park on Park Avenue, 1714 Park Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21217 United States

Baltimore’s Jewish community arose through several distinct waves of immigration during the 19th and 20th centuries. There’s no better place to investigate this legacy than the Reservoir Hill/Bolton Hill district, where Jews from three different immigration waves intermingled in the years before World War II: “fresh off the boat” refugees from Nazism, Russian and Polish immigrants who arrived between the 1880s and 1920s, and descendants of Central European Jews who came in the mid-19th century. This walking tour will reveal surprising facets of Baltimore Jewish history by focusing on interactions within this diverse Jewish population. The tour, led by historian Deborah Weiner, will highlight the district’s synagogues as well as the homes of Jews who played a significant role in the Jewish community and in Baltimore more generally.

Food from Home: Immigration, Bakeries, and Delis by Bike

June 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am | Register
Patterson Park Pagoda, East Lombard Street and South Patterson Park Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21224 United States

Celebrate Baltimore’s rich history of immigration with a bike ride that will include stops at several, hundred-year old ethnic food establishments in east Baltimore. Each will offer some tastings of their most famous goodies to sample. In addition to picking up some calories (and hopefully burning them off along the way!), you’ll have the chance to “digest” the motivation for different ethnic groups to migrate and the importance of immigration to the growth of Baltimore. Also “sandwiched” into this tour will be some facts about painted screens, formstone, the sad fate of the bagel, and the history of Nutella.
