The first Jews to settle in North America were Sephardic refugees arriving in New Amsterdam in 1654.


From the dawn of American history, Jews have played a vital role, making contributions far beyond their numbers. This tour focused on the dawn of American Jewish history from 1654 and the critical role this vibrant minority has played throughout the colonial, revolutionary, and early republican periods.

Itinerary

Highlights include a view of New York harbor, monuments to early immigrants who defined the metropolis, Wall Street with Federal Hall and the Stock Exchange, the location of the first synagogue in North America, Alexander Hamilton's grave at Trinity Church, Fraunces Tavern, the oldest building still standing in Manhattan, and the First Spanish Portuguese Jewish Cemetery (possible the oldest European built structure that remains intact in Manhattan).

Food options include bagels, connolli, coffee, and more!
