As Thanksgiving nears, travel virtually to the city of brotherly love. In this live, virtual walking tour we’ll explore two historic sections of Philadelphia that highlight important Jewish contributions to the city and to the founding of the U.S.: the former Jewish Quarter, where hundreds of thousands of Eastern European Jews settled in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and Independence National Historic Park, where Jewish people joined in the project of founding the new nation. See historic photos and present-day scenes that tell some of the many stories of these important places, people, and times.

Please note: The Museum’s virtual walking tours are live-only events and will not be available to watch after the event is over. Also, event times are in Eastern time; use this time zone converter to see what time it will be in the city being toured.
