Built in 1887, the Eldridge Street Synagogue is the first great house of worship built in America by Eastern European immigrants. Today, it has been meticulously restored by the Museum at Eldridge Street. This National Historic Landmark features an exuberant combination of Moorish, Gothic & Romanesque styles, stained-glass windows, paint decoration and Victorian-era lighting and a monumental new window by artist Kiki Smith and architect Deborah Gans.
Deborah Gans, AIA, Principal of Gans Studio, and Museum at Eldridge Street Deputy Director Amy Stein-Milford will lead a tour of the site focusing on the restoration and the vision behind Gans’ and Kiki Smith’s new window for this 125-year space.
Reservations must be made in advance.
