The Jewish Harlem Walking Tour

October 14 , 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Urban historian Marty Shore leads tour-goers through the sites of Jewish religious life in the remarkable urban settlement of Harlem, once the second largest Jewish community in the United States. In 1917, Harlem was home to more than 175,000 Jews.
The tour visits the exteriors of grand synagogues, including the Ethiopian Hebrew Synagogue “The Commandment Keepers,” Temple Israel of Harlem, Congregation Shaarei Zedek and The Oheb Zedek Synagogue (former home to Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt).  We will talk about Molly Goldberg, and much more!
