Gilbert Sandler, whose popular columns have appeared in Baltimore’s Jewish Times and the Baltimore Sun, offers a wide-ranging history of the region’s Jewish community from the s to the present, covering both German Jewish and Russian Jewish communities. Sandler’s archival research uncovers new details about important people and events, but the heart of his book lies in its anecdotes and quotations—the reminiscences of those who recall the rich tapestry of days gone by. More than a hundred nostalgic photographs help to bring the memories to life. Many of Sandler’s essays invoke famous names in Baltimore history—names like Jack Pollack, the ex-boxer turned politician; Joseph Meyerhoff, who gave his city a symphony hall; Samuel Hecht, founder of the last surviving local department store chain. But just as often, these essays remind us of unsung heros: Sandler tells many inspirational stories, including how one young woman, escaping from Germany in on a ship headed to Bolivia, seized an opportunity when she learned the ship would stop in Baltimore. She sent a cable to her boyfriend in Richmond, Virginia, telling him to meet her at the dock, and the two were married onboard—which eventually allowed her to enter the United States. Sandler always uncovers the “human interest” in his stories. His account of the S.

Jewish families, schools, and institutions in Baltimore grapple with the many of the same questions facing their counterparts in northern Virginia, DC, and other Jewish communities in Maryland when it comes to day school education. Kol HaBirah found interesting differences, however, in the approach of Baltimore schools to the issue of affordable tuition compared with the Greater Washington-area schools covered in Part 1 of this series.
One factor in play is demographics. According to the most recent surveys by their respective Jewish Federations, 32 percent of Baltimore-area Jews identify as Orthodox, compared to six percent for DC metro-area Jews. Since not all families are charged full tuition, and not all grades cost the same for schools, tuition and expenditures are not perfectly correlated.
There are trends, however, common to both the Baltimore and Greater Washington communities. First, the vast majority of Orthodox parents would never send their children to a non-Jewish school, according to Rabbi Tendler. As a result, Tendler said, Jewish day schools have no trouble enrolling a very high percentage of children from Orthodox families. One exception to this rule is children with special needs.
Several day school leaders told Kol HaBirah that in such cases, even Orthodox parents may find that public school is their only option. Rabbi Moshe Schwartz, Head of School for the Krieger Schechter Day School, agreed and said that enrollment and retention are the greatest challenges facing non-Orthodox community day schools.

Jews represent a group of people rather than a distinct race or ethnicity. Although Jews originally came from the Middle East, many races and peoples have mixed together in Jewish communities over the centuries, especially after the Jews were forced out of Palestine in the second century C.E.

There are three main types of blessings.

Many Jewish singles that are looking for a mate of either sex whether woman, man, girl, or boy , or just a date, look online on the web at the many Jewish dating sites, Jewish matchmaking services, or free Jewish dating service websites that exist on the web online. As finding a mate is important for many Jewish singles, both women and men, and because many Jewish people want to only marry within their religion and faith, a large number of free Jewish dating service websites have been created online over the last few years to help these people.
Some of these agency sites are even free to use, or at least browse. There are different types of Jewish dating sites on line. Some of these sites allow singles to become a member and submit some information about themselves, such as photos, hobbies, interests, and religious affiliation and level. Other singles can then browse this information looking for someone that interests them, whom they can then contact through the site to set up an off line date or phone call, kind of like a Jewish personals page.
Other sites act more as matchmaker services and agencies, where people fill out a comprehensive form about themselves which is then looked at by people who work for the service, who then in turn try to match with another member based on the two members’ interests and other information. After making a match these services and the people involved hope to have a Jewish wedding, with a Jewish wedding ring. Another recent phenomenon are the Jewish speed dating services and agencies also known as Hurry Date or HurryDate , which arrange speed dating sessions for Jewish singles – allowing single men and women to meet many potential mates in one evening, face to face, not online.
In addition, there are travel agencies that arrange trips for Jewish singles, hoping to help single men and women find their mates through these vacations, travels, cruises, and trips. Some of these sites have online chat rooms as well. Some Jewish dating websites are geared toward all Jewish people regardless of religious observance, while others are geared toward specific religious levels and affiliations such as Orthodox, Conservative, Conservadox, Reform, or even Messianic.
Some target only those that keep a kosher diet or are Sabbath observant. Some of these services and sites are free, while others charge a fee for their service.
