Uncover the rich Jewish heritage of NYC at one of the city's most stunning hidden treasures—the Museum at Eldridge Street, housed inside an 1887 synagogue. With an expert guide leading the way, learn of the synagogue's history, see its spectacular restoration, and delve into its fascinating exhibits.
Upon arrival, join a docent for a tour inside the National Historic Landmark, the first great Jewish house of worship built by Eastern European immigrants in America. Hear of the 20-year efforts to restore the synagogue to the glory that you see today.
Dive into the story of immigrant life on the Lower East Side, admiring authentic Yiddish signs, ritual objects, archival documents, and excerpts from the museum's collection of oral histories. See photographs that tell the incredible family stories from the wave of Jewish migration to the Lower East Side, and marvel at the monumental stained-glass window—the only 21st-century addition to this magnificent landmark.
Guests are welcome to spend additional time after the tour seeing the exhibits.
