The Reher Center fosters belonging by engaging all people through culture, community, work, and bread. Together, we preserve and explore our historic bakery site and honor its legacy by amplifying Kingston and Hudson Valley immigrant voices and contributions, past and present.

Thanks for a great 2023 season!

The Reher Center's public gallery hours and bakery tours have ended for the winter.

We will resume gallery hours and Historic Reher's Bakery Tours in July 2024!

In Memorium: Howie Blas


With heavy hearts, we share the passing of Howie Blas, a founder of the Reher Center, a dear personal friend of Hymie Reher, and beloved husband of our board president, Barbara Blas. Howie will be sorely missed by so many in our community.

We are moved that the Blas family has asked that donations be made in Howie’s memory to three organizations he cherished. The Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History, Congregation Agudas Achim or Chabad of Ulster County.
