Shuls of Grandeur on the Lower East Side -A Columbus Day walking tour

  • Meet in front of Bialystoker Synagogue 7-11 Willett Street/Bialystoker Place (between Grand and Delancey Streets) New York, NY 10002 United States (map)

Visit TWO grand synagogues remaining on the Lower East Side today. One is the first great house of worship built by Eastern European Jews, and the other a former church, believed to be a site on the Underground Railroad.

We start our tour at Bialystoker Synagogue, the largest active orthodox congregation on the Lower East Side today, covered in murals, showcasing Tiffany inspired glass windows, and end at the magnificently restored Museum at Eldridge Street.

A portion of the proceeds is returned to the sites visited. Tour lasts approximately 3 hours with significant amount of walking

This tour is being co-sponsored with The Museum at Eldridge Street.

Tour is an additional $2 for tickets purchased at the door.
