Happening Sunday: A look at Maryland's 'Jew Bill' and Fight The Fade

-How Jews Entered American Politics: The Curious Case of Maryland’s “Jew Bill”: Surprise! The United States has a regrettable history. In our own state, Jews and other non-Christians were not allowed to hold public office until the Maryland “Jew Bill” was passed in 1826. Jewish scholar Dr. Rafael Medoff gives a talk illuminating the debates leading up to the passing of the bill and the politically exclusive atmosphere of the time. 1 p.m., Jewish Museum of Maryland, 15 Lloyd St., (410) 732-6400, jewishmuseummd.org, free with admission.
