About the Author

Gilbert Sandler is one of Baltimore's most-read and well-known local historians. For more than thirty years, through his articles in the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore Jewish Times, National Public Radio and his books and lectures, he has shown Baltimoreans, through anecdote and memory, who they are, where they have been and, perhaps, where they are going. He was educated in Baltimore's public schools and graduated from Baltimore City College; in World War II, he served in the United States Navy as a ship-board navigator in the Pacific. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and has a master's from Johns Hopkins. He has been active in Baltimore's Jewish community and admits that his involvement has provided him with the interest and curiosity to search out the stories that make up Jewish Baltimore.

This repackaging of Gilbert Sandler's articles originally published in the Jewish Times will be a bestseller. In 160 pages of nostalgic prose and evocative pictures he captures the Jewish Baltimore that existed in various parts of the city before an exodus starting in the 1950s concentrated the community in the northwest quadrant of the city and Baltimore County. Sandler, a great storyteller, takes us to Lombard Street's Corn Beef Row, political boss Jack Pollack's softball games in Easterwood Park, to the days of Carlin's Amusement Park at Park Circle. He writes about the now-vanished tradition of "living above the store," the midwives of East Baltimore and so on. Sandler's previous book, Jewish Baltimore: A Family Album, plowed some of this same ground, and sold well. As have all of his other books. Thank you, Gilbert.
Isaac M. Fein's The Making of an American Jewish Community has long been the most scrupulous account of Baltimore's Jewish history. But it only covered the time span from 1773 to 1920. That's why it is wonderful that the Jewish Museum of Maryland, which co-published Sandler's latest, is working on a book that will bring that rich story up to the modern times.

This book was so very interesting. I was born in Baltimore and raised in Baltimore County, and there was an interview with someone I knew

Really just a compilation of articles, not all that compelling but it's great nostalgia and I and my 88 year old mom both ate it up.
