Guide: Dr. Irving Cutler
A sentimental journey to historic Jewish neighborhoods and sites – from downtown to Maxwell Street, Lawndale, Garfield Park, Humboldt Park, and Wicker Park. Stops will be made at a former famous Lawndale Synagogue (now an African-American church) and also at the Garfield Park Conservatory. There will be a short walk on a fascinating street. Places on the way include the Jewish People’s Institute (JPI), Mount Sinai Hospital, synagogues, theaters, schools including Marshall, Herzl, and Penn, and facilities associated with famous residents such as Golda Meir, Benny Goodman, and Admiral Hyman Rickover.
Dr. Cutler is the author of The Jews of Chicago: From Shtetl to Suburb.
