3:00 p.m.

One of the world’s largest synagogues, Congregation Emanu-El was founded in 1845. Its second and current Fifth Avenue synagogue was completed in 1929. A spectacularly decorated Art Deco interpretation of Moorish and Romanesque styles, Temple Emanu-El stands as one of New York City’s greatest spiritual and civic landmarks able to accommodate 2,500 people, on the scale of the cathedrals of St. Patrick’s and St. John the Divine. Temple Emanu-El is among the earliest Reformed Jewish congregations in New York. The building is open weekly for architectural tours after Saturday services, and has an on-site Judaica museum.

A special, pre-booked tour led by curator Warren Klein will be offered.

Space is limited and advance registration is suggested.
