Join Dr. Edith Frankel for a memorable and thought-provoking exploration of historically recreated homes and the immigrants and migrant families who lived in them in the 19th and 20th centuries. Through the true stories of ordinary families who lived in these iconic buildings, you’ll get a glimpse of the past and glean insights into historical perspectives that relate to current conversations about immigration. Tour the Kehila Kedosha Janina Synagogue, the only synagogue in the Western Hemisphere of the tiny, obscure Jewish Community known as Romaniotes who trace their roots to the town of Ionnina in northwestern Greece. The museum portion includes costumes from Janina, a large collection of alephs (distinctive hand-painted birth certificates), a literary center, and art gallery. Lunch at Katz iconic Jewish deli – an eating experience like no other!
