In 1887, the Eldridge Street Synagogue became the first American religious institution founded by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, and it has since been recognized as a National Historic Landmark. The museum commemorates this historic wave of Jewish migration to the Lower East Side, and contains exhibitions, tours, educational programming, and events celebrating the Lower East Side's Jewish community as well as the neighborhood's Chinese and Puerto Rican communities of present day. Eldridge Street hosts a variety of educational classes, activities, and events throughout the year, and the synagogue and museum serve as symbols of the strength and resilience of immigrant communities throughout American history.
