Study Jewish immigrant history, too


Places as important as the 9/11 Memorial, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty clearly influence other nearby repositories of history too.


    The Museum of Jewish Heritage at 36 Battery Place has an exhibit about Emma Lazarus right now, continuing until autumn.


    Sure we memorized her lines including, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…


    The Poet of Exiles exhibit helps understand why she responded to Joseph Pulitzer’s request that she write a poem for the Statue. 


    An early advocate for immigrants and for a Jewish homeland, Lazarus was a fourth generation Sephardic-American. Nice statue of her in the Liberty Island sculpture garden.


    The Museum at Eldridge Street rounds out the story with presentations of culture, history and traditions of Jewish immigrants to New York’s Lower East Side in a synagogue opened in 1887, the year after the Statue of Liberty first stood tall.
