Boston's Old North End Jewish Walking Tour    NEW!

From the late 1870s to the early 1920s Boston's North End was home to a large community of Eastern European Jews, primarily situated in a triangular area of Hanover, Prince, and Endicott Streets. Concurrently, this oldest neighborhood in the city would house over a dozen synagogues. On this walk we will see places where people lived, worked, worshiped, attended Hebrew classes, and shopped. Salem Street or "Shalom Street" as the locals called it, was the center of Jewish life and was packed with Jewish owned groceries (greenies), kosher delis, butcher, cigar, tailor, and dressmaker shops. William Filene's dry goods store and the Stop & Shop supermarket chain were located here as well as being the birthplace of art patron Bernard Berenson among others. In this busy neighborhood we shall see street signs and buildings that bear witness to this time gone by. In an effort to keep our walking tours affordable, and to gain some financial support for our program, we are offering "pay what you will" options. Please choose the payment amount that is best for you.
