Shalom Baltimore

New to Baltimore's Jewish Community?

Shalom Baltimore is here to connect you to Jewish Baltimore…

Baltimore has an active and diverse Jewish population and many, like you, were not born here!

If you are new to our community, a partner in an interfaith relationship, or just looking to meet other Jewish people, or if you simply need to find a synagogue, day school, kosher restaurant or more, Shalom Baltimore is here to help. Shalom Baltimore, a program of the JCC, was created to seamlessly welcome you as the newest members to the Baltimore Jewish community and help you settle in. 

To help get you acclimated, we start with a personalized one-on-one meeting with a Shalom Baltimore volunteer. Shalom Baltimore volunteer matches are made based on demographic information, denomination, occupation, area where you both live and interests. The more information you provide, the more you will have in common with your volunteer!

At your welcome meeting, you will receive a Shalom Baltimore Welcome Bag containing coupons for local Jewish organizations and stores including a trial membership at the JCC, a free Challah from a Kosher Bakery in town, a trial subscription to the Jewish Times, and a one-year membership to the Jewish Museum of Maryland. The Welcome Bag also contains community resources to help you get involved.

We look forward to welcoming you to Jewish Baltimore!
