Jewish North End

Private Tours : Additional Tours by Request
The Jewish history of Boston is somewhat different than the other early port cities of the eastern United States. Few Jews lived in Boston in the 17 th and 18 th centuries, and a permanent Jewish community didn’t establish itself here until the 1840s. The wave of migration from Eastern Europe of the late 19 th century greatly enlarged the Jewish community of Boston, and many of the new immigrants of this period ended up living in the North End. This historic residential neighborhood also includes links to the lives of Jewish Bostonians from earlier centuries as well. This tour will explore some of the stories of Boston’s Jewish experience from the 17 th century through the early 20 th century. find out more
