Eldridge Street Synagogue Reviewed

For more than 20 years, the Eldridge Street Project worked to restore the landmark Eldridge Street Synagogue on New York’s Lower East Side. Hundreds of people worked on this great task, and late last year the synagogue was reopened.

This week, New York Magazine’s blog Daily Intelligencer has a great video tour of the restored building as well as an architectural review.

We know that visiting the LES isn’t something that many of our readers can do easily, so enjoy.
