The Museum at Eldridge Street, founded as the Eldridge Street Project in 1986, presents the culture, history and traditions of the great wave of Jewish immigrants to the Lower East Side, drawing parallels with the diverse cultural communities that have settled in America.  The Museum is located within the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue, a National Historic Landmark. Nearly lost to time, harsh weather and limited use, the synagogue has been faithfully restored to its original, evocative grandeur. Tours, exhibits, and public and educational programs tell the story of the generations that carried religious and communal traditions to a new country, and celebrate America’s broad cultural traditions.
