In 1887, the Eldridge Street Synagogue was the first great house of worship to be built in America by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe.
This National Historic Landmark is the last major evidence of the extensive Jewish settlement on the Lower East Side in a neighborhood that is now a vibrant part of Chinatown.
A permanent exhibition tells the story of Jewish immigrant life from the turn of the last century to today through Yiddish signs, Jewish ritual objects, historic photographs, archival documents and oral histories. Its displays earned The American Association of Museums’ Gold Award for Interactive Installation.
The building’s meticulous $20 million restoration has won awards and the only 21st century addition to its fabric is a stunning new stained glass window.
While playing an important role in this multi-cultural community, the venue is where a small group of worshippers still pray on the Sabbath and Jewish holidays.
