Jewish Upper West Side – A Walking Tour

About this event

Join our guide, Barry Judelman, as we explore the unique and culturally rich history of the Jewish community of the Upper West Side, an area boarded by Central Park to the East, and Riverside Park to the West. This neighborhood is a ‘powerhouse’ of shuls, schools, and Jewish culture. The architecture exemplifies Beaux-Arts, Art Noveau, and Art Deco.

Among the many sites of Jewish interest, we will visit, will include Congregation Rodeph Sholom, The JCC of Manhattan, Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, the Society for the Advancement of Judaism (Judaism that Stands for All), and The Jewish Center, a neo-classical Modern Orthodox synagogue, built-in 1918, that was among the first in the US to feature a pool and recreational space. Its founding Rabbi was the controversial Mordecai Kaplan..

We will discuss how this special community continues to shape the identity of American Jews to this day.

This tour lasts approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours with significant walking, and WE TOUR RAIN OR SHINE.
