Boston's Old South End Jewish Walking Tour   

From the 1840s to the 1920s, a vibrant Jewish neighborhood flourished just south of the Boston Common. Our tour will take us on a cultural journey past many sites and buildings that still stand today. We will view the plaque on Boston Common to Edward Filene, the founder of the Bargain Basement, the building that formerly housed the Associated Synagogues of Massachusetts and the Grand Lodge of Masons before entering the Theater District along Warrenton Street. See where the first synagogue in Boston, Ohabei Shalom, was built in 1852. Our tour will wind its way into Bay Village which was once the film distribution center in New England, and then continue into the heart of the South End along Tremont Street through beautiful Union Park. The third location for Ohabei Shalom was on Union Park St. in the former South Congregational Church. These are just some of the places we will see on our walk.
