Photography show focused on women at historical society
This photograph of an Ethiopian Jewish woman is from the exhibit "Jewish Women: A World of Tradition and Change" at the Jewish Historical Society of Maryland. The exhibit includes more than 50 black and white photographs by Joan Roth, whose work is included in the collections of the Jewish Museum in New York, the Brooklyn Museum and the New York Public Library, among others. For "Jewish Women," Roth photographed in more than a dozen countries and covered the spectrum from young to old, from rich to poor.
The show continues through October 22 at the Lloyd Street Synagogue Gallery, 11 Lloyd St. Currently running at the society's Cardin Gallery, next door at 15 Lloyd St., is "Daughter of Zion: Henrietta Szold and American Jewish Womanhood." For information on both shows, call (410) 732-6400.
