About the event:

Manhattan is home to a remarkably diverse range of churches and synagogues, many of them several hundred years old. As we walk past them, we often find ourselves wondering about their history and what they look like inside. This virtual event takes us on an exclusive tour through the uplifting interiors of 65 houses of worship in Manhattan.

Michael Horowitz started photographing synagogues and churches in Manhattan in 1994 during a visit to the Eldridge Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side, which is now a National Historic Landmark.

This virtual event transports us to the interiors of iconic landmarks like the Eldridge Street Synagogue, and Trinity Church as well off-the-beaten-path places like the rustic Church of the Resurrection on East 74 th Street, and the gothic crypt of the Church of the Intercession in Washington Heights. These and many more are featured in the new book Divine New York: Inside the Historic Churches and
Synagogues of Manhattan.

Attendees will receive a link to join the webinar after completing the registration.
