About Our Events

Lost & Found Music Series

The Museum at Eldridge Street's Lost & Found Music Series extends our preservation mission, presenting Jewish musical forms that are at risk of disappearing. This fall, we present works that are inspired by and reinterpret the Golden Age of Cantorial Music to mark the 125th anniversary of the Eldridge Street Synagogue.


The Morris Kaplan Scholar-in-Residence Program

The Museum's Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Regina Stein is an engaging instructor of Jewish history and culture. Dr. Stein also teaches at the Skirball Program for Adult Jewish Learning at Temple Emanu-El, the Context Program of the Jewish Theological Seminary, and other New York area synagogues and institutions.

The Museum at Eldridge Street's Adult Learning program is funded, in part, by the Alice Lawrence Foundation.


Preservation Detectives Family Program

Binoculars? Check. Notepads? Check. Magnifying glasses? Check. Preservation Detectives, grab your tools and prepare for adventure. Step into a world filled with color, stories, and secrets. Climb stairs, count stars, open doors, even peek inside these 125 year old walls. Each month features a different theme, art project, and a new discovery.


Building & Rebuilding Architecture Series

Talks, open houses and walking tours explore the art, architecture and preservation of the Eldridge Street Synagogue and New York City's built environment.
