In the late 19th and early 20th century, the North Slope of Beacon Hill was a neighborhood that was home to a large population of Jewish and Italian new immigrants as it transitioned from being populated by working and middle class African Americans. The Jews of the North Slope lived an active Jewish life with three synagogues within just a few blocks of each other, carrying customs of their old world with them even as they made changes to the new world around them. This tour focuses on the lives of the Jews of the North Slope around the turn of the 20th century and talks about the changes to the neighborhood over the years that they lived here.
