History Hunters: A Kid’s Life at Synagogue

March 8 , 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

That’s why we created our History Hunters series for families. Each interactive session explores what it was like to be a kid on the Lower East Side in the early 1900s and the next one is on Sunday, March 8 at 11am. Join us to discover what turn-of-the-20th century children would have seen and heard, eaten and worn (yes, we have period costumes to share with kids who like dress-up!) here at the Eldridge Street Synagogue, the historic building that houses the Museum today.

You may be surprised that some of the more memorable things kids experienced at shul weren’t even religious! It was a place for poor children of the neighborhood to mix with some of the richest families around. It was a place for kids to glimpse some of the most eye-popping innovations of the day. Plus, it was a place for lots and lots of fun. And no matter how distant the past sometimes seems, in that respect, nothing’s changed. Come to Eldridge Street for lots and lots of fun at History Hunters: A Kid’s Life at Synagogue!

This program is ideal for children ages 5 to 11 and their history-loving adult companions, i.e. you! Reserve your spot today; click below:
