Baltimore: New Book Shows Community’s Legacy

Since the first Jewish resident emigrated to Baltimore in the mid-1700s, the Jewish community has grown to almost 100,000. In her new book, “Images of America: The Jewish Community of Baltimore,” Lauren Silberman chronicles the community’s history through images.

Silberman, 26, a Memphis native, said she created the book, which was released this week, “not only as a reference tool but as a love letter to the community.”

Silberman is the education and program coordinator at the Jewish Museum of Maryland in Baltimore. “The Jewish Community of Baltimore” includes 200 black-and-white photographs, most of which are historic. Silberman said the majority of the photos came from the Jewish Museum collection.
