About this Event

Of the hundreds of synagogues on the Lower East Side during the turn of the last century, two magnificent examples remain. 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 tour 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 is returned to the sites visited. Tour lasts approximately 3 hours with a significant amount of walking.

This tour is being co-sponsored with The Museum at Eldridge Street.

Tickets are an additional $3 PP when purchased on the day of the tour, pending availability.

Included in the price of the tour will be the use of wireless microphones to enable you to better hear the guide.
