Museum at Eldridge Street

Discover the Eldridge Street Museum where you will be immersed into the Jewish heritage of New York. The museum is housed in the Eldridge Street Synagogue, a national landmark from 1887 that was the first great house of worship in America built by immigrants from Eastern Europe. Exhibits, tours, cultural events and educational programs tell the story of Jewish immigrant life. The museum explores architecture and historic preservation, inspires reflection on cultural continuity, and fosters collaboration between people of all faiths and heritages.

The center of the museum’s permanent exhibition contains Yiddish signs, Jewish ritual objects, archival documents, artifacts from the building’s restoration and excerpts from the collection of oral histories. The museum houses award-winning interactive displays on immigrant history, Jewish practice and historic preservation.

The Museum at Eldridge Street was founded to restore and interpret its home, the historic synagogue and serve people of all backgrounds with educational and cultural programs. For the Jewish immigrants of a century ago, the synagogue was a monument to the religious freedom and economic opportunity of their new home. Today, it is a powerful symbol of the historical and cultural contributions brought to America by generations of immigrants.
