Guided tours of the Vilna Shul

June 6, 2014

The Vilna Shul is now a destination and a place of learning for anyone interested in Jewish history, culture and spirituality. It is a must-see historic site for visitors to Boston and a unique community venue for concerts, speakers, films and Jewish life cycle events.
Just blocks away from the homes of some of Boston’s wealthiest residents are the former tenements of some of its poorest. Once deemed an undesirable neighborhood, Jewish immigrants lived, worked and prayed throughout this neighborhood that once included the north slope of Beacon Hill and the old West End. The Vilna Shul/Boston’s Center for Jewish culture is where these immigrants worshiped and it is the last immigrant era synagogue in Boston and the only Jewish museum in the city.

The Vilna Shul is an ideal place to learn about Jewish history and culture for ages twelve and up.
To schedule group tours of 5 or more please call or email Jessica Antoline, Program Manager, at (617) 523-2324 or [email protected] Please let Jessica know the ages of your group members as well as any specific needs your group may have.
