The East Bronx History Forum and the Huntington Free Library are pleased to announce the forum will hold its 162nd meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 16  at 8 p.m. with a Zoom presentation, “The Lost Synagogues of the Bronx” presented by Ellen Levitt.

Levitt is the author of “The Lost Synagogues of the Bronx” and “Queens” (2011) and two other books about NYC’s lost synagogues.

Some of the former synagogue buildings have undergone changes, even in the past few years. Levitt will speak about these, as well as other former Jewish institutions in the Bronx, and also a bit about those that are still active.

Ellen Levitt is a former NYC DOE high school teacher and has written for several websites and publications. She is also a licensed tour guide and her most recent walking tour was for a Long Island high school group, along the Grand Concourse.
