The Lower East Side is known as Manhattan’s Jewish neighborhood, a cultural center for the world’s second largest Jewish population outside Israel. Follow the stories of Jewish immigrants in New York and discover their influence on the greatest city in the world! Experience Jewish history and culture like never before! Choose the 2-hour walking tour to discover important Jewish heritage sites, synagogues, mutual-aid societies, libraries, and stores in New York City. One of them is the Angel Orensanz Cultural Foundation, the first synagogue built in the Lower East Side. You will also pass the Bialystok Synagogue, which has been an active place of worship since 1826. The next stop will be East Broadway street, where you will find the Educational Alliance, which served as a settlement house for Eastern European Jews mass immigrating to NYC at the end of the 19th century. Nearby is also the Forward Building, which housed the office of the Forverts, one of the most widely circulated Jewish papers in the Yiddish-language. The tour will end at the historic, Moorish Revival-style Synagogue-Museum at Eldridge Street. Choose the 3,5-hour option to book a 1,5-hour round-trip transfer with your 2-hour Jewish history tour.
