Cradle to the Grave – Building Tour
May 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Tour the Museum at Eldridge Street and celebrate the Jewish lifecycle – 1887 style! Stand under a huppah (wedding canopy) in our starry main sanctuary and learn about the dramatic story behind a pickle mogul’s wedding. Try your hand at reading a century-old bar mitzvah speech and learn about the first girl in the United States to have a bat mitvah ceremony. We will use artifacts and oral histories from our collection to shed light on the milestones, both celebratory and solemn, that took place at the Eldridge Street Synagogue and on the Lower East Side.
