See the Harlem Renaissance for yourself. Join City Congregation member Marty Shore on a walk through Jewish Harlem, once the third largest Jewish community in the world, and have lunch at Amy Ruth – a neighborhood icon.
The one-hour walk will take us by the former Temple Israel, one of the most prestigious synagogues in the city during the first quarter of the 20th century, and by the Ethiopian Hebrew Synagogue, “The Commandment Keepers.” We will see the home and synagogue of Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt, considered the king of cantorial music. And we will pass by the former homes of music and theater icon Richard Rogers and actress Gertrude Berg of “Molly Goldberg” radio fame.
The walk is a City Congregation fundraiser. For $50 per person you get a professional walking tour and an authentic Harlem lunch. The walk is from 11:15 to 12:15 followed by lunch at Amy Ruth at 116th street and Lenox. We start at 120th Street and Lenox Ave in front of Mt. Olivet Baptist Church.
