Add to Calendar 07-04-2013 07-04-2013 15 Jewish Harlem Harlem was once the third largest Jewish settlement in the world, after Warsaw and the Lower East Side. In the neighborhood more than 150,000 Jews listened to the great Yossele Rosenblatt chant Sabbath services and were terrified when gangsters like Lefty Louie Horowitz and Whitey Lewis fought gun battles on 125th St. They bought at Blumstein's Department Store and saw teen-age singers Walter Winchell and George Jessel begin their careers. The tour considers the following questions — Why did Jewish New Yorkers move to Harlem? What was their reception? How did they keep the children within the fold? Are any synagogues still active in Harlem? Today still visible are Stained-glass Stars of David Ten Commandments tablets Middle Eastern filigree A cornerstone that says built in "5668" Such vestiges of Orthodox Judaism as women's balconies http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=130409 Joyce Gold History Tours of NY true DD/MM/YYYY
