Lost Synagogues of Brooklyn

Sunday, March 23, 2014 - 09:00

Tour the neighborhoods of Prospect Heights, Weeksville, Bedford Stuyvesant, Williamsburgh and Greenpoint. We'll start and finish by viewing working synagogues, but in between we'll see many former synagogues and Jewish institutions, most of which have become churches. Our list of sites has been compiled from the book "The Lost Synagogues of Brooklyn" by Ellen Levitt. The author will meet us at some of the locations. Lunch on the Lower East Side of Manhattan will be late in the ride. As a bonus, we will sample a few Jewish institutions in lower Manhattan after lunch. Bring snacks, drinks, money for lunch, a lock for your bike, and spare tube(s), pump, and tools.
