June Virtual Senior Program: Virtual Tour of the Tenement Museum in New York

June 21, 2021, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Virtual Tour of the Tenement Museum in New York

Monday, June 21, 2021

Entertainment: Free 
1:00 pm on Zoom
Join the United Hebrew, Shaare Emeth, Temple Israel and Temple Emanuel Seniors for our June Virtual program. The Tenement Museum provides many opportunities to understand the experiences of immigrants and migrants, and the fundamental role they play in defining our national identity.  Our virtual tour will follow the story of the Jewish American Rogarshevsky family from Lithuania who moved to the Lower East Side in New York. The parents, Fannie and Abraham, raised six children in 97 Orchard Street, balancing work, family, and their religious faith during the 1910s. This tour will consider the difficulties of factory work through the experiences of the family’s teenage daughters, and learn about labor unions, working conditions, and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory.  Those who have registered will be emailed a link to join the interactive program on your computer or other device a couple days before the program.  Unfortuntely the tenement museum will not allow us to show it on this page or record it so you can only view the tour at the time of the program through the Zoom link they will provide.
