The Wandering Jews of New Jersey

May 22 @ 7:00 pm

Bamberger’s Department Store

Wednesday, May 22, 7:00 pm

Travel back in time and visit the first Jewish settlements in the urban centers of Newark, Paterson, Passaic, New Brunswick, Jersey City, and Trenton. See the old Bamberger’s Department Store, Beth Israel Hospital, and the old Newark synagogues — B’nai Jeshurun, B’nai Abraham, and Oheb Shalom. Visit the waterfalls of Paterson and its Jewish-owned silk factories, and explore the Jewish farming communities of Alliance, Vineland, and Woodbine – the first all-Jewish town in the world — everyone who ran the town, including the mayor, the police and fire chiefs, and members of the town council, was Jewish and spoke Yiddish. You will also get to visit the old vacation spots of Lakewood and Atlantic City. Presented by Oscar Israelowitz, a licensed NYC tour guide, author and experienced lecturer.
