Shuls of Grandeur on the Lower East Side
October 11 @ 10:45 am – 1:45 pm
One is the first great house of worship built by Eastern European Jews, and the other a former church, believed to be a site on the Underground Railroad. We start our tours at Bialystoker Synagogue, the largest active orthodox congregation on the Lower East Side today, covered in murals, showcasing Tiffany inspired glass windows, and end at the magnificently restored Museum at Eldridge Street. A portion of the proceeds are returned to the sites visited. Tour lasts approximately 3 hours with significant amount of walking.
This tour is being co-sponsored with Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy.
