Shuls of Grandeur on the Lower East Side
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 Bialystoker Synagogue, the largest active orthodox congregation on the Lower East Side today, covered in murals, showcasing Tiffany inspired glass windows, and end at The Museum at Eldridge Street.
This tour is being co-sponsored with The Museum at Eldridge Street.
Meeting Place: In front of Bialystoker Synagogue, 7-11 Willett/Bialystoker Place (between Grand and Delancy Street)
