  • A gem worth searching out. Tour person Elsa was so personable and explained everything so well w interesting stories from her family background. Wonderfully restored. I thank the congregation for opening their beautiful house of worship to share. Totally worth finding. I walked .4 mile from there to the tenament museum - which accents the them of immigrants and community.
  • “Mesmerizing stained glass, never miss it!” Located in Chinatown, Eldridge Street Synagogue may be the most beautiful synagogue in New York. Especially, never miss the main stained glass which was added in 2010 during its restoration. I've seen many stained glassed while traveling America, but haven't met such one. Amazing. When I first entered into an entrance, I thought $14 admission fee is a little bit too much for its small size. It changed as going up to the main floor and seeing a sea-like blue stained glass. The building is not so big like St. Patrik Cathedral or E-Manuel Temple on 5th Ave so one can look around in 20 mins if you walk fast. But I spent almost 2 hrs just looking all the stained glasses and delicate ornaments. Just walk through the nave or sit on it for a while and appreciate its beauty.
  • Great museum of a very old synagogue. The museum shows what Jewish life was like over 100 years ago in New York City. The tour guides were very knowledgeable
  • Very beautiful!! The guided tour is very interesting, they have it every hour on the hour throughout the day. Mondays are pay as you wish
  • It's a beautiful shul (synogag) and the staff are friendly!
