Hanukah program at 11 am; Ongoing activities from 12 to 2 pm
Wind, rain, and the passage of time nearly destroyed the Eldridge Street Synagogue. But just as the ancient Temple was rebuilt in the Hanukah story, the synagogue was also saved from destruction. Come explore this Lower East Side landmark as we tell the Hanukah story together. We’ll eat, sing, spin dreidels and find out how a 19th century synagogue has become a 21st century treasure.
