Tour of The Eldridge Street Synagogue

Monday, March 1 | 2:00pm | $10

Step inside the Museum at Eldridge Street- virtually! Join us as we explore the magnificent architecture and fascinating history of the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue, the first great house of worship by Eastern European Jewish immigrants in the United States. This National Historic Landmark has been lovingly restored and today is a touchstone of the Lower East Side immigrant experience. Museum docent Maxine Simson will guide you through the building’s tumultuous story – from its founding and heyday, to its near-collapse and its miraculous restoration.
