May 22
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until September 8, 2017


Museum at Eldridge Street, 12 Eldridge Street
New York, NY 10002 United States

From Prague-based collector František Bányai comes a remarkable collection of historic postcards on Jewish themes. Both beautiful and poignant, the postcards offer a view of a time and place that no longer exist – synagogues, many destroyed during the Second World War, people on their way to prayer, celebrating and sending greetings in a vanished Eastern Europe of a century ago. This exhibit has been extended and will be on view through September 8.
