In light of today's meetup at the LESTM I can across the following and thought it might be fun. This is not the typical meetup but below is the description of the event. The Eldridge Street Synagogue is quite the historic establishment and they are sponsering the following street fair. I don't know what to expect but I think the event should be fun. Although the event is free, you need to register online and they will send you a ticket to your email. I suggest preregistration just in case. I am not sure if the synagogue will be offering tours but I think we should be able to get inside. We can plan on meeting outside the Museum at Eldridge Street at noon. Description:
Experience the eggs-traordinary! Chinese opera and acrobatics, klezmer music, Yiddish and Chinese language lessons, mah jongg, scribal arts, food and folk art demos, crafts, synagogue tours, and more! Don’t miss New York City’s best block party, a cross-cultural celebration of the Jewish and Chinese communities of our Lower East Side/Chinatown neighborhood. Free
Sponsored, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, NYC Councilwoman Margaret Chin, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, NYC & Co. Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts. Seltzer donated by BK Seltzer Boys.
