The Museum at Eldridge Street is housed in an 1887 restored synagogue located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. This awe-inspiring Moorish, Gothic and Romanesque building was the first great house of worship built by Eastern European Jews settling in New York. After a 20-year restoration campaign, the sanctuary now holds tours, education and cultural events. A must-see for the renovation tour is the monumental stained-glass window that was a collaboration by artist Kiki Smith and architect Deborah Gans.
