  • 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 home–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.
