Eldridge Street Project
Type of Place: Museums
The Eldridge Street Project is preserving the Eldridge Street Synagogue as a site for historical reflection, aesthetic inspiration, and spiritual renewal.- Eldridge Street Project
In this powerful setting, programs for adults, school children and families explore cultural continuity and change, instill respect for Jewish traditions and practices, and draw analogies between the Synagogue's immigrant founders and contemporary immigrants.
As steward of this National Historic Landmark, the Eldridge Street Project uses the building as a learning center for exploring architecture and historic preservation, synagogue life and customs; a gathering place for inter-group experiences; and a showcase for art and cultural experiences that draw on Jewish and humanistic themes.
