Weekday Sketchers at Eldridge St Synagogue
Opened in 1887, this was the first great house out worship in America built by Jews from Eastern Europe. After falling into terrible disrepair in the mid 20th Century, the building has been meticulously restored and now is listed on the National Historic Registry. It is now a museum rather than a house of worship.
Join us for a day of sketching the intricate woodwork, beautiful stained glass and soaring space in the only remaining marker of the great wave of Jewish migration to the Lower East Side. For more information about the building, its history and restoration, click here:https://www.eldridgestreet.org
