Event description

Description

Visit TWO grand synagogues remaining on the Lower East Side today. 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 the Bialystoker Synagogue, the largest active orthodox congregation on the Lower East Side today, covered in colorful 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 2 1/2 -3 hours with significant amount of walking

Tour is an additional $3PP for tickets purchased at the door.

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

WE TOUR RAIN OR SHINE!
