On this trek of the Lower East Side, we will explore a cast of turn-of-last century figures, and the buildings where they lived, worked and prayed. Your tour starts in the historic sanctuary of the Eldridge Street Synagogue where you will learn about the characters associated with this fabulously restored house of worship. Enjoy a small kosher for Passover snack before we hit the streets.
On our walk, you will see the building that housed a newspaper edited by a famous Yiddish Socialist; the settlement house founded by a tenacious 26 year old nurse; a yeshiva associated with one of this century’s most famous rabbis, and a former Bank building currently undergoing a major renovation
We end our tour with a visit to the Magnificent and wildly colorful Bialystoker Synagogue, where you will see the memorial plaque of a noted gangster.
