Walking Tour of Boston’s Old Jewish North End

June 1, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST


boston-north-endBoston’s eastern European Jewish immigrants of over a century ago lived in Boston’s North End—home of Colonial founders and Revolutionary War heroes, Boston’s Irish immigrants, and the southern Italians with whom they shared these historic, scenic streets. Come walk in their footsteps and visit sites that tie Paul Revere, Harvard ministers, small synagogues, grand churches, and basketball courts to Boston’s Jewish immigrant history. Our tour leader is Prof. Ellen Smith of Brandeis University, a leading authority on the history of Boston’s Jewish
community and co-author of The Jews of Boston.
Cost $35.

  • Tour is available to JGSGB members (you may join before signing up), and one accompanying guest.
  • The walk will be at an energetic pace and is not suitable for persons with limited mobility. Wear comfortable shoes and a hat.
  • Tours will go rain or shine (bring an umbrella, wear appropriate footwear).
  • Each walking tour is limited to 20 participants.
