Harlem was once the second largest Jewish community in the United States. In 1917, it was home to more than 175,000 Jews. Join Yeshiva University History Professor Jeffrey S. Gurock,* author of When Harlem Was Jewish,[masked], as he leads you through the sites of Jewish religious life in the remarkable urban settlement of Harlem.

Delight in the exteriors of grand synagogues that remind us of Harlem?s Jewish past. See the exterior of an active Ethiopian Hebrew synagogue called ?The Commandment Keepers.? You will walk by the former homes of Temple Israel of Harlem, Congregation Shaarei Zedek, The Oheb Zedek Synagogue?home to Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt in the[masked]?s, and then move on to the block that once housed the uptown Talmud Torah which served more than 1,400 students every week.

WHAT: JEWISH HARLEM, A NEW Walking Tour in ENGLISH

ORGANIZED BY: Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy

WHEN: Sunday, May 17, 11:15 a.m., 3 hours, easy walking, few stairs.

WHERE: Meet at the bus in front of Congregation Oheb Zedek, West 95th Street (between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues).

FEE: Adults: $27; seniors and students: $25. ****

TO RESERVE A SPOT YOU MUST CALL (212)[masked] X 2 or 3; If there is still space left when you call, they will then tell you where to mail your check. There has been a lot of interest in this event and it is filling up quite quickly.

Once you have called and reserved a spot, then RSVP "yes" here, on the Hebrew Language Meetup board.

* For those who signed up for the tour that would have taken place on March 29, but was cancelled, either phone or e-mail[masked]; [address removed] stating that you were signed up (and mention whether you paid in advance) and would like to reschedule for May 17th. If you were not signed up before, just call the number and ask to sign up now for the May 17th tour. Last time there was a $3.00 discount for early registration so ask about that as well.

** If you would like to come JUST to the dinner, sign up "yes", answer the appropriate questions that pop up. It's hard to know exactly what time we will arrive to the restaurant from the tour, but I think 3:00 should be about right, give or take a bit.

*** Before the tour I will be holding a Hebrew Meetup sign where we meet the bus. In the retaurant, there will be a Hebrew Meetup sign on the table.

**** Please note that In Addition to the cost of the tour and your meal + 30% for tax and tip, there is a one dollar meetup event fee to help offset the costs of running this group.

At the conclusion of the walking tour we will walk or take a bus to:

Cafe Blossom:
466 Columbus Avenue
Between 82nd and 83rd Streets
New York, NY 10024
(212)[masked]

Kosher, vegan restaurant http://www.blossomcafe.com/

[b]PLEASE NOTE MY POLICIES:

a) Members who sign up "yes" but don't show up are asked not to sign up for any more of my events. This policy takes effect at one incident.
(Changing your "yes" RSVP to "no" in advance of the event is no problem. The issue is those who RSVP "yes," never change it, and still do not attend.)

b) "Maybe" responders will recieve an e-mail asking them to update their RSVP to a definite "yes" or "no" sometime before the event. "Maybe" responses not update by the specified time will be removed from the board.
