Help celebrate Ulster County Cultural Heritage Week by touring the historic Reher Bakery buildings.  Learn about the history of Kingston’s Waterfront District from 1820 through the urban renewal years.

SHARE YOUR OWN STORY

If you have stories to share about your own or your family’s immigrant experiences, or memories to share about the Reher Bakery or the Reher family,  we will be available to record your recollections for the Reher Center’s growing archives on these dates and times.

 

A project of the Jewish Federation of Ulster County, the Reher Center is rooted in the Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), often expressed today by working for social justice.  In keeping with its mission, the Center serves not only as a museum highlighting Rondout’s rich history of diversity and commerce, but also as a cultural hub where all people can gather  to explore and share their varied traditions, past and present, in search of common ground.
