The Tenement Museum brings to life the immigrant experience in the United States and tells the story of American history from the point of view of the Jewish, Irish, Italian, Puerto Rican, Chinese, and Holocaust immigrants who have built our city and our country. If you want to understand the American experience, you have to understand the immigrant experience.
On Thursday, February 25, we are presenting a unique program that will give us a tour of the Tenement Museum and help us understand how this museum has operated during the pandemic.
The program will start at 11:00am with a virtual tour of the Rogarshevky family. The Rogarshevkys were Jews who immigrated from Lithuania and lived at 97 Orchard Street in the 1910s.
After this program, Morris Vogel, the long-term President of the Tenement Museum, and Annie Polland, the incoming President will meet with our group to discuss how the Museum has operated during the pandemic and the plans for the museum as our city and country recover. Morris and Annie are two of the most accomplished museum leaders in the country. We are extremely fortunate to have them participate in our program.
Participants must register by February 24th to receive details on joining the discussion.
Please note that no refunds will be issued.
