First we will tour The Lloyd Street Synagogue, including the Mikva and a matzo baking oven, built in 1845, now the nation’s third oldest surviving synagogue and B’nai Israel Synagogue, built in 1876 and still home to a vibrant congregation. Then on to a special exhibit at the Museum: Remembering Auschwitz, which combines four exhibits:
- A Town Known As Auschwitz: The Life and Death of a Jewish Community
- Architecture of Murder: The Auschwitz Birkenau Blueprints
- Loss and Beauty: Photographs by Keron Psillas
- The Holocaust Memory Reconstruction Project
This trip's $20 fee includes bus transportation, admission to the Museum and a privately led docent tour. It does not include lunch, but you may lunch on your own at the delicious Attman's Deli or a restaurant of your choice.
Meet the bus at 10630 Little Patuxent Pkwy at the parking lot of the Century Plaza 1000 Building. We will leave promptly at 9:30 am.
