On December 4, The Museum at Eldridge Street hosted a Grand Re-dedication and Landmark Distinction Awards Dinner to celebrate the re-opening of the National Historic Landmark 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue and to honor Lorinda Ash Ezersky, Jeffrey Gural and Michael Weinstein for their leadership in the restoration effort and in the creation of the new Museum at Eldridge Street (formerly known as the Eldridge Street Project).   The event, which raised $1 million for the Museum thanks to the 500 guests in attendance, began with cocktails at the synagogue followed by dinner at Capitale in New York City.

Recently, the Museum at Eldridge Street celebrated the grand re-opening of the Eldridge Street Synagogue, the culmination of a 20-year, $20 million restoration effort.  The new Museum is a vital cultural and educational center celebrating more than a century of Jewish life in America.
