Free and open to the public!
Join us for a talk followed by a walking tour led by acclaimed scholar Elissa Sampson. You’ll learn about the neighborhood’s historic synagogues, old tenements, landsmanshaftn, and secret community gardens that tell a tale of the LES’s evolution. Bring your walking shoes! The talk will run from 1-1:30PM, with the walking tour from 1:30-2:30PM (if it rains, we’ll spend more time inside). If you come earlier, the Stanton Street Synagogue’s shabes service starts at 9:30AM, and all are welcome to join the congregation for some nosh at the kiddush at 12 noon.
