This tour meets in front of the Bialystoker Synagogue 7-11 Bialystoker Street/Willett Street (between Grand and Delancey Streets).
On this trek through 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 at the Magnificent and colorful Bialystoker Synagogue, where you will see the memorial plaque of a noted gangster. Other stops include 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. Join us afterward for a kosher for Passover nosh in the historic sanctuary of the Eldridge Street Synagogue and learn about characters associated with this historic house of worship.Buy tickets/get more info now
