Wednesday, February 23rd: 1920s Synagogue Soirée

1920s Synagogue Soirée
Museum at Eldridge Street (12 Eldridge St., Manhattan)
$15, only $10 for Facebook fans

Dust off your wingtip shoes, slip on a flapper dress, or don a fedora for the Museum at Eldridge Street’s 1920s Synagogue Soirée.

We travel back in time and channel the Roaring Twenties when the Eldridge Street Synagogue experienced a second heyday, attracting a new generation of members including renowned rabbis, businessmen and even the occasional actor or artist. (Edward G. Robinson, Paul Muni, and Ben Shahn were some of the notables rumored to have passed through here.) Enjoy period food (think pickles, olives and tea sandwiches), a beer tasting, live music, and soak in the history of our magnificent landmark space.
