It is one of the first synagogues in the United States. In December 2007 the Museum completed the restoration; it was a 20-year, $18.5 million effort. Today the Eldridge Street Synagogue is home to the Museum at Eldridge Street, which welcomes people from around the world for tours relating the American Jewish history, school programs, concerts, lectures, festivals and other cultural events, in which we will see artifacts, documents, vintage clothing and wonderful architecture.

Collections: The museum is organized in three groups: Beyond the Façade (focuses on elements of our landmark home), Ways We Worship (religious objects, personal items used by congregants during prayer) and From Ellis to Eldridge (material relating to the immigrant men and women who came together to form the synagogue’s congregation).
