Docent tours are given every hour. Closes early on Fridays and no tours on Saturday as this is a working Shul. Wonderful Gothic architecture. It was restored several years ago. Beautiful stained glass window by Kiki Hughes.

The history and information about the immigration of the Jewish people in New York was fascinating. The architecture of the synagogue is stunning. Really is worthwhile to take a tour if you are in the Lower East Side.

The guided tour took 45 minutes to an hour. Give it an hour to 1 1/2 hours at the most should do it.
