Tour the Historic Bialystoker Synagogue Tonight

Posted on: July 13th, 2017 at 5:08 am by

Tonight, the historic Bialystoker Synagogue is once again hosting a special tour of its house of worship. Originally built in 1826 as a Methodist Church, the synagogue is also believed to have been one of the stops on the Underground Railroad.

Hosted by the non-profit Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy, “Bialystoker The Beautiful” will illuminate area history and other such information about the largest active congregation on the Lower East Side today. With its rich history and exquisite interior of murals and Tiffany inspired glass windows, this tour isn’t one to pass up.

It’s happening tonight at 7pm, so if you’re looking for something to do, pick up $12 tickets here, and meet in front of the Bialystoker Synagogue on 7-11 Willett Street/Bialystoker Place (between Grand and Delancey Streets).
