Generation to Generation Festival
November 12, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Don a top hat or bonnet, and travel back in time to 1887 when the Eldridge Street Synagogue first opened. Our Generation to Generation Festival will present the traditions, music, and art of the Eastern European Jewish immigrants. Enjoy synagogue tours and musical performances. Take a 19th-century citizen test. Try your hand at nineteenth -century crafts. Take a photo at our old-fashioned photo booth. Partake in art activities inspired by immigrant life on the Lower East Side and your own family history. Dressing in period garb is encouraged!
