Event description

Description

Once you've seen one house of worship, you've seen 'em all, right? Not quite! Step inside a historic synagogue on Fifth Avenue to see one of the most incredible religious sanctuaries in all of New York, the United States, and perhaps the world.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes exploration through the historic Temple Emanu-El, one of the largest synagogues (and houses of worship) in the world.

Led by licensed NYC guide Michael Morgenthal, who went to a yeshiva just blocks away from the temple, our experience through this majestic Art Deco temple dating back to 1929 will include:

  • The history and story behind Temple Emanu-El and its notable Fifth Avenue plot within New York City
  • A visit to the incredible main sanctuary, which includes a 175-foot long hand painted & gilded ceiling, Guastavino-tiled walls, more than 60 stained glass windows, original Hildreth Meière mosaic works, and 2,500 seats that have an unobstructed view of the ark
  • A walkthrough of smaller sanctuaries hidden throughout the temple, which contain rare Tiffany stained glass
  • A special look inside the temple museum with original artifacts, and rooms that haven't been touched since 1929

Our experience will conclude on the temple roof deck for sweeping views of the NYC skyline!
