What You’ll Do
Passover is an appropriate time to reflect on the rich cultural history of the Lower East Side. It’s also a great excuse to eat chocolate-covered matzo. Do both with the Museum at Eldridge Street as a part of their Passover Nosh & Stroll, a 90-minute cultural excursion that’s as appealing to the mind as it is to the tastebuds.
Feast on snacks from Streit’s Matzos and the Pickle Guys, including matzo, fresh horseradish, pickles, candy, and cream cheese, as you tour the historic Eldridge Street Synagogue.
The guide leads a tour past the Forward Newspaper Building, Loews Movie House, Jarmulowsky Bank, and other landmarks that were of great importance to the Jewish immigrants who transformed the neighborhood in the early 20th century.
The Food’s History
Learn about culinary landmarks such as Essex Street Food Market, The Pickle Guys, and Streit’s Matzo Factory, then enjoy a toast of slivovitz—that’s a traditional fiery plum brandy—outside the former site of Schapiro’s Wine.
Where You’ll Meet
Museum at Eldridge Street
Museum at Eldridge Street’s stunning facade—a blend of Moorish, Gothic, and Romanesque architecture—is just as impressive as its history. The National Historic Landmark, built in 1887, provides a glimpse into the past, putting visitors in the footsteps of the synagogue’s founders. Its authentic portrayal of the immigrant experience helped the venue land on Time Out New York’s list of NYC’s coolest museums while its stunning design led the New York Times to call it “gasp-inducing.”
