Museum At Eldridge Street - Historic Synagogues of America

History and Culture Tour

Our most popular tour! Virtually explore the 1887-built Eldridge Street Synagogue, the first sacred site in America built by Eastern European Jewish immigrants. This magnificent National Historic Landmark has been beautifully restored and today is a touchstone to the Lower East Side immigrant experience. On you this, you’ll travel back in time to when the Statue of Liberty greeted new Americans and pushcarts crowded the streets.

Jewish Lower East Side: Walking Tour

Once home to the largest Jewish population in the world, the Lower East Side still bears traces of Jewish life from the turn of the last century. With your knowledgeable guide, you will stroll the neighborhood streets visiting old synagogues, Yiddish newspaper buildings, socialist hot spots and the best pickle shop in New York.
