When Harlem was Jewish

Tour #4: Jewish Harlem

Join Marty Shore, urban historian and founder of Manhattan Walks, as he leads you through the sites of Jewish religious life in the remarkable urban settlement of Harlem, once the second largest Jewish community in the United States. In 1917, it was home to more than 175,000 Jews.

Delight in the exteriors of grand synagogues that remind us of Harlem's Jewish past. You'll walk by the former homes of Temple Israel of Harlem, Congregation Shaarei Zedek, The Oheb Zedek Synagogue-home to Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt in the 1910-1920's, and then move on to the block that once housed the uptown Talmud Torah which served more than 1,400 students every week.

Pricing for this tour differs slightly from our other tours. Please contact the office for details.
