Museum at Eldridge Street

Katherine and Duncan had visited this museum previously, but Allison went for the first time to the restored synagogue. Saved from dilapidation by a group of wealthy donors, it is now a working synagogue, but serves more as a museum of the history of Judaism on the Lower East Side (see also: The Tenement Museum). Some lovely friends from Potion are responsible for the interactive exhibits in the basement. Beautifully done, and the gift shop had a Passover coloring book. You can’t find those just anywhere. 

Looking forward to the event partnering Eldridge with its Chinatown neighbors: Egg Rolls and Egg Creams.
