Walking Tour: Exploring the Jewish Upper West Side – In-person Event

Discover the vibrant tapestry of Jewish heritage on the Upper West Side alongside Barry Judelman, historian and tour guide. Stroll through a neighborhood brimming with cultural treasures, where synagogues, schools, and the essence of Jewish life intertwine with architectural marvels in Beaux Arts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco styles.

The many sites of Jewish interest we’ll visit include: The Jewish Center, a Modern Orthodox synagogue that was among the first in the US to feature a pool and recreational space, Society for the Advancement of Judaism, the founding congregation of the Reconstructionist movement, and Congregation Rodeph Sholom, home of the first Reform day school in North America. Engage in enlightening discussions about how this community continues to influence the narrative of American Jewish identity, and savor delectable delights from a Jewish market along the way. Join us for an enriching exploration of history, culture, and the enduring spirit of Jewish life in New York City.

This tour will take place rain or shine. Note: Some tour stops are not wheelchair accessible. The meeting location and additional logistical information will be emailed to all registrants one week before the tour, and again the day before the tour. 

NOTE: Limited spots available. Tickets will sell out quickly!
