Stops and pass-bys of important Jewish sites: Stop in the only remaining Synagogue in Harlem since the turn of the twentieth century. Stop in Mt. Olivet, famous Baptist Church, where remnants of Jewish symbolism can be seen both in the interior and exterior of this beautiful edifice. This was the original Temple Israel built in the early 1900s. Lunch at the famous Sylvia’s restaurant (included in fee).
