Jewish NYC is the world’s largest Jewish community outside of Israel. New York’s first Jewish community, Shearith Israel, arrived in Dutch New Amsterdam in 1654, before it was even New York.
The Jewish community is one of the communities that defines New York City. Many Jewish New Yorker traditions have become American traditions of the United States.
After the faith celebrations of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Hanukkah, New York City’s biggest Jewish celebration is the Israel Parade. Giving Tuesday has become a holiday tradition. It was started at the 92nd Street Y in the Upper East Side.

New York is the city with the world’s largest Jewish population. The first Jewish community to arrive in New Amsterdam in 1654 is still here. It’s the Sephardic community Shearith Israel. Sephardi are descendants of Spanish and Portuguese Jews who were expelled from Iberia in 1492.
The community’s struggle for acceptance is what made New York a city open to all who are willing to work and be governed. Probably more than anything else, this has been New York’s greatest blessing. New York is the city of work. We are the capital of the world because everyone is welcome here.
New York City’s notable Jewish institutions include the 92nd Street Y, JCC Manhattan, Center for Jewish History, Jewish Museum, Museum of Jewish Heritage, Museum at Eldridge Street.
The New York Jewish Film Festival at Film at Lincoln Center with the Jewish Museum, is New York City’s first film festival of the year. There’s also the New York Sephardic Jewish Film Festival and the Reelabilities Film Festival.
