The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy presents an activity-packed day of exploring and learning about the Jewish history of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Event includes an exhibit by acclaimed photographer Rebecca Lepkoff, three walking tours of the neighborhood, a vintage goods benefit sale and special presentations by renowned guest speakers. Tickets for the tours are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and free for children under age 8.

The festivities continue at 12:30 PM at the Family Visitor Center with Gals From the Hood, a presentation about what life was like for Jewish women on the Lower East Side. In this engaging presentation, four women who grew up together on the Lower East Side, and have remained friends for over 50 years, discuss the experiences of their families in the neighborhood. Panelists include Hesta Fortgang, (co-owner of Tag-Along Estate Sales), Marilyn Guss Altman (daughter of the founder of Guss’s Pickles),Carol Schneider Margolin (daughter of the K’nish Man) and Carol Hordin (daughter of the founder of Hordin’s Deli). The four women will also be sponsoring a benefit sale throughout the day, with vintage goods for the home, fashion jewelry, artifacts and serving ware available for purchase. All sale proceeds will benefit the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy
