The Jewish History of Harlem
Hosted By: Baltimore Zionist District
Join the Baltimore Zionist District and tour guide Barry Judelman for an engaging talk about Jewish Harlem, which from 1870 -1930, was the third largest Jewish community in the world, after New York’s Lower East Side and Warsaw, Poland.
Learn about famous people of this often-forgotten segment of Jewish history and learn about Harlem’s legendary Jewish institutions – many of which transformed the Judaism of today’s world. Discuss sites such as Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein’s trendsetting Institutional Synagogue (affectionately known as the “shul with the pool”) and the magnificent Temple Israel by noted Jewish architect Arnold Brunner.
