Please support the unique work of the LESJC, which since 1998 has kept the Jewish history of the Lower East Side alive and accessible for thousands of visitors from across the world.
Whether your group numbers 8 or 80, the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy makes Jewish history come alive like no one else can.
As an affiliate of the United Jewish Council, our relationships – along with our knowledgeable guides – serve to bring group members a unique, insider's view of Jewish sacred sites and other historic places in New York City. And while the Lower East Side will always be the focal point of NYC's Jewish history, we'll show you why it's just the beginning of the story.
We will tailor a tour to meet your group's specific desires - and give everyone a deeper understanding of the Jewish immigration experience.
"AJC NY was pleased to partner with The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy for our 21st Diplomatic Tour of Jewish New York. The tour provided over 100 lay leaders and diplomats—from over 30 countries—an illuminating and enjoyable peek into the history, culture and modern day vibrancy of one corner of the LES. The Conservancy was a pleasure to work with and its guides where knowledgeable of the area and provided fascinating glimpse of Jewish New York's history and contemporary life." ~ Michael Schmidt, Director AJC NY
