This tour of the city of New Orleans will emphasize its 250-year old Jewish history. Departing from Tulane University we'll follow the streetcar line into the Central Business District, stopping at the oldest synagogue outside of the original thirteen colonies, and pass through areas where Sephardic and Askenazic Jews peddled vegetables, opened department stores, and traded in sugar, cotton and bananas. As we head through the French Quarter to City Park, and then back past Jewish cemeteries, you will hear stories of how Jewish entrepreneurs and philanthropists left their mark on the Crescent City. Your guide will be Julie Schwartz, a former lawyer, who now works as a freelance writer, public speaker and a licensed New Orleans tour guide. She currently serves as president of the New Orleans Chapter of Hadassah.
$30/person, advance registration required, space is limited to 20 people.
