Our friends at the Museum at Eldridge Street are offering an interesting walking tour, “Yiddishe Mamas,” that will focus on historic woman of the Lower East Side, this Sunday at 11am. They write:
Grab a woman you love or admire, and join us for our Yiddishe Mamas Lower East Side walking tour. We’ll follow in the footsteps of pious women and prostitutes, activists and artists, freethinking feminists and tough-talking balabustas. Hear about anarchist Emma Goldman; Visiting Nurse Service founder Lillian Wald; mikvah attendant, wigmaker and real-estate investor Gittel Natelson; delicatessen queen Sarah Gellis, and other memorable women.
