Jews wander. Jewish communities migrate. Half a century ago these communities migrated on various wheel spokes outward, their institutional identities and Torah scrolls in tow.

This blog contains my reflections on the work of an urban rabbi in a city as complex - exciting, expansive, provincial, gritty, isolating, political and inspiring - as Baltimore.
