Jews have had a long and largely successful relationship with Johns Hopkins University. From the University's inception as a relatively welcoming, open-minded research university, to its large representation of Baltimore's Jewish community, many Jews have made Hopkins their home for four years. This project exhibits different aspects of Jewish life across the University's history. It gives a sense of what it meant for different students to be Jewish on campus, and how their identity affected other Jewish students and the University at large.
