Calling all artsy kids and newshounds! School's out and we've got the perfect vacation day for you. Join us for this special weekday family program as we look closely at selections from the exhibition Pressed: Images from the Jewish Daily Forward. We'll examine photographic prints and historic pages from the Forward newspaper, the number-one news source for Jewish immigrants in the early 1900s. We'll focus on how images tell stories - and then make our own works of art exploring storytelling through images. Recommended for children five and up and their adult companions.

  • The Museum at Eldridge Street is a cultural institution that tells the stories of Jewish immigrant life, old New York, and architecture and historic preservation through the lens of its homeā€“the Eldridge Street Synagogue. Opened in 1887, the synagogue was the first grand house of worship built in America by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe. Today, it is a meticulously restored National Historic Landmark and it is one of the few remaining markers of the great wave of Jewish migration to the Lower East Side. More than 40,000 visitors a year join us for a vibrant slate of programming, including building tours, walking tours, concerts, lectures, family programs, and art exhibitions.
