Virtual Tour: Rogarshevsky Family, 1910s
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Join us for a virtual tour exploring the Rogarshevsky family, a Jewish American family from Lithuania who lived in 97 Orchard Street in the 1910s. Just like on our Sweatshop Workers building tour, a Tenement Museum Educator will virtually guide you through their home, and discuss how the family balanced their traditions with working outside the home at garment factories across the city.
Venue: Tenement Museum
