Come discover the history, architecture and the magical sanctuary of the landmarked Eldridge Street Synagogue, a beautiful house of worship built by Eastern European immigrants in America, in our After Hours Tour and Wine Reception on Wednesday, July 22nd, co-presented by Untapped Cities and the Museum at Eldridge Street. This will be our Summer Happy Hour event for our readers and contributor community, so come on down, we’d love to meet you. [Update: if you missed this tour, join us for our December 9th Secrets of the Eldridge Street Synagogue Tour and Wine Reception].
You’ll step into the footsteps of the synagogue’s immigrant founders who finally got to celebrate their religion gloriously and openly in the free land of America. Swap historical facts and quirky architectural detail over wine. Be on the lookout for the parts of unrestored lath and plaster in the building’s balcony which reveal how the building is put together, with brick, lath, plaster, even pieces of horse-hair, used to bind the plaster.
