This apartment tour takes you into the world of tenement families to explore the challenges and changes faced by Jewish immigrant mothers in 1902. Visit the Levine family’s tenement apartment, where Jennie Levine managed a household and oversaw family finances while her husband ran a garment factory in their front room. Then, explore a few stops nearby to learn where and how women organized the Kosher Meat Boycott of 1902, led by women like Jennie, which both divided and united Jewish Lower East Siders. This interactive tour invites you to explore how women asserted their rights before they had rights as citizens, and how they inspired future generations and movements.
