Virtual: Rogarshevsky Family
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
See how immigrant families balanced their traditions with working outside the home at garment factories across the city in the early 20th century. 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 they adjusted to life in America.
