Khal Adath Jeshurun Synagogue [Eldridge Street Synagogue], c. 1887, watercolor, Museum of the City of New York.

In honor of the 136th anniversary of the first high holiday service at the Eldridge Street Synagogue, the Museum at Eldridge Street is offering a very special building tour on Monday, September 18th at 1pm ET.

On this day 136 years ago, you would have seen thousands of excited Lower East Side residents streaming through the doors of the Eldridge Street Synagogue for the first time, spilling out onto the street, thrilled by this meaningful new addition to the neighborhood.

Join Education and Accessibility Senior Manager Scott Brevda and Curator and Archivist Nancy Johnson to explore what the original congregants would have experienced as they navigated Jewish life on the Lower East Side. This tour will include rarely-seen objects from the Museum's permanent collection, such as an original golden embroidered ark curtain and High Holiday Torah mantle.
