American Immigration during Houdini’s day, 1878-1924 @ Jewish Museum of Maryland
Aug 19 @ 1:00 pm

Erich Weiss (who would become the great Harry Houdini) landed in New York with his family in 1878 at the tender age of four, part of a wave of mass immigration that would expand to over 24 million new arrivals to the shores of American by 1914.

The beginning of this wave originated largely from Germany, Ireland, Scandinavia, and Britain, but as industrialization spurred prosperity in western Europe in the 1890s, the bulk of immigrants began arriving from Italy and eastern Europe.

Join us as Dr. Nicholas Fessenden explores the impact this wave of immigration had on the United States and its immigration policies – particularly the birth of a restrictionist movement and Congressional quotas that lasted from the 1920s to the 1960s.

Zion’s FAMOUS Sour Beef Dinner @ Zion Church of Baltimore
Oct 24 @ 4:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Each year, Zion serves a traditional sour beef dinner, complete with homemade potato dumplings, red cabbage, green beans, rolls, cake and coffee or tea. This dinner has been prepared for years by the Frauenverein, or ladies aid society, mostly without a recipe and dependent upon what they were taught by their mothers. Their mothers called it sauerbraten, but the German immigrants wanted to adopt the name to their new home and thus the name was translated to ‘sour beef’. The ladies work tirelessly for more than a week in preparation of this feast. “For the people that work on this dinner, it is a labor of love, it is perpetuating our heritage and our roots in the Baltimore community”, says Freddie Herbert, a Co-Chair of the dinner.
