BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! NHBZ Sisterhood proudly presents A Jewish Legacy Tour of St. Louis!
Enjoy a guided 4-hour tour of historic Jewish St. Louis with guide Linda Koenig.
Learn about the contributions St Louis Jewish residents made to both the St. Louis Jewish community and the community at large.
A Sample of the Itinerary: What is the Jewish connection to Keiner Plaza, the Wainwright Building, Macy’s, the Old Courthouse, the 1904 World’s Fair, Aloe Plaza, the Old Cathedral, and the Arch grounds? Who was St. Louis, and what was his relationship with the French Jews? What is that big monument across Kingshighway from the Chase? Did you know the Zionist flag first flew in St. Louis? Where and when and why?
We will see former synagogues, the old YMHA and a very historic Jewish cemetery among many other historic Jewish St. Louis sites.
