Join the museum on Zoom for a special Yom Kippur program. The Book of Jonah, one of the most famous and exciting stories in the Bible, is traditionally read on Yom Kippur at synagogues around the world. Join us on Zoom for a learning session with Rabbi Aviad Bodner, in preparation for the Day of Atonement as we explore the central question of the story: Why did Jonah run away from God? Rabbi Aviad Bodner serves as Rabbi of Congregation Ramath Orah on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He earned an LLB in Law from Bar Ilan University and received his semicha from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. Before Ramath Orah, he served as Rabbi at Stanton Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side for five years (2014-2019). He also teaches at the Ramaz Upper school in the Tanach, Talmud and JLT departments. This is a Zoom program. Please see the Zoom link in your order confirmation.

  • 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.
