Words from our Donors
“It is crucial that such an important building, which very often gave persecuted immigrants a place of refuge and freedom to practice, should never be lost to this city or world. It was, and is now, a beautiful building.”
“Visiting the synagogue is like visiting Ellis Island. The spirits of my father’s father and mother and all of my great-grandparents are in the pews and the windows and chandeliers and prayers books and bimah.”
“Eldridge Street should be maintained throughout the ages so it can inspire future generations of not only Jewish people but also people of all faiths.”
“It is a joy to visit – and you can’t beat the quality of the classes and the folks who teach them.”
