Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy to Host Crossing Delancey Tour, 9/20
The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy will present Crossing Delancey, a public walking tour, on Sunday, September 20 at 10:45 AM. Meeting at the Stanton Street Synagogue, one of the few remaining tenement-style synagogues on the Lower East Side, the tour examines sacred sites of the Lower East Side of the early 20th century. The group will visit both the Angel Orensanz Cultural Foundation (formerly Congregation Anshe Chesed), the oldest synagogue building in New York City) and the remarkably-restored Congregation Chasam Sopher, the oldest continually operating synagogue in New York City.
The tour meets at 10:45 AM at Stanton Street Synagogue (180 Stanton Street, between Clinton & Attorney Streets). Tickets are $22 for adults and $20 for seniors and students. (Tickets are $2 additional day of tour). Tickets can be purchased at http://www.lesjc.org/calendar.htm#092015.
