From the late 1870s to the early 1920s, Boston’s North End was home to a large community of Eastern European Jews, primarily situated in a triangular area of Salem, Prince and Endicott streets. Concurrently, this oldest neighborhood in the city would house over a dozen synagogues.
On this walk, we will see places where people lived, worked, worshiped, attended Hebrew classes and shopped. Salem Street, or “Shalom Street,” as the locals called it, was the center of Jewish life and was packed with Jewish-owned groceries, kosher delis, butcher, cigar, tailor and dressmaker shops. William Filene’s dry goods store and the Stop & Shop supermarket chain were located here, as well as being the birthplace of art patron Bernard Berenson, among others. In this busy neighborhood we shall see street signs and buildings that bear witness to this time gone by.
