  • 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.
