Family History Today: East Village Lost Synagogues Walking Tour

New York, NY

Ellen Levitt, author of the Lost Synagogues of New York trilogy, offers an in-depth look at old shuls and Jewish sites in "Alphabet City." These buildings are less well-known than those in the heart of the Lower East Side, but they are fascinating for their relation to genealogy, architecture, interfaith relations and much more. We will stop by at least one shul that was endangered, but is once again functioning as such. Others have become churches, private homes and a community center.
Location: This tour will begin at First Park, on the corner of 1st Avenue and East 1st Street.
