For centuries, Jews have considered medicine a calling. Historians point out that “few occupations are as immediately linked to a group as medicine is to the Jews,” a connection that has become “the stuff of legend and stereotype, both positive and negative, and a source of pride, amusement, entertainment, and folklore.”

Beyond Chicken Soup illustrates how the field of medicine has at once been a vehicle for discrimination, acculturation, and strengthening Jewish identity. The Maltz Museum features the rich history of Northeast Ohio’s medical community, including the unique role of Mt. Sinai Hospital and its trailblazers and milestones.

Beyond Chicken Soup: Jews & Medicine in America was created by the Jewish Museum of Maryland with support from the National Endowment from the Humanities and Institute of Museum and Library Services.
