Tours of the Oldest Jewish Congregation in America

If you like Jewish history, the oldest Jewish cemetery, and a structure that was built prior to 1654, you will like to see 1654 Society at Congregation Shearith Israel.

The Society was formed to make knowledge of the Jewish-American history and experience available to all people, who are interested.

By learning how the Jews lived, and live today, it will educate people in the Jewish ways so they will better understand the Jewish faith.

They offer tours through the Synagogue, ancient cemeteries, archives, and exhibits that explore the history of the Jews in America that is not found anywhere else.

The Congregation is located at 8 West 70th St in NYC. You can call 212-873-0300 for more info.
