If you have been following Simon Schama’s excellent BBC series, The Story of the Jews, you would have seen a focus on a couple of New York synagogues in Episode Four.
Here are my photos of two of these magnificent and contrasting synagogues:
Eldridge Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side
Temple Emanu-el on Fifth Ave
There is also a book:
The Cantorial Trio
(L-R) – Yanky Lemmer, Shimmy Miller and Zevi Muller with Charlie
