From East Baltimore to Owings Mills, from Nates and Leon's Deli to Hutzler's department store, Gilbert Sandler tells stories of the neighborhoods, people, and landmarks that have been important to Baltimore's Jewish experience. This wide-ranging history of the region's Jewish community from the 1850s to the present features more than 100 black and white, archival photographs and a wealth of anecdotes and quotations.
"No one knows Baltimore—and Baltimore's Jewish community—better than Gil Sandler. He's an extraordinary spokesman for an extraordinary community."—William Donald Schaefer
