Explore two sides of the same story and discover how immigrant women ran their households like a business. Visit Jennie Levine’s tenement apartment, where she oversaw the household while her husband ran a garment factory in their front room, and sought to keep her family fed in the wake of rising meat costs. Then, explore the story of Goldie Lustgarten, her family’s kosher butcher shop in the basement of 97 Orchard Street, and their role in the Kosher Meat Boycott of 1902, led by women like Jennie, which both divided and united Jewish Lower East Siders.
