The Museum at Eldridge Street invites you to join us at the Eldridge Street Synagogue for Immigration, Religion and Culture on New York's Lower East Side, a week-long Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This five-day teacher workshop treats the Lower East Side of Manhattan, a neighborhood known for its immigrant history, as a primary source. Through walking tours, lectures and photography, we will bring you and a diverse group of scholars together to learn about how various ethnic, religious and immigrant groups adapted their religion and culture to America. The workshop aims to provide you with the tools and inspiration to bring the Lower East Side of Manhattan back to your classrooms. The first session will be held Monday,July 14-Friday, July 18 and the second session will be held Monday, August 4 to Friday August 8, 2008.
