“In every port in the world, at least two Estonians can be found.” (Ernest Hemingway)

New York Estonian House

The New York Estonian Educational Society was born on December 7,1929. A meeting of the various local Estonian organizations was convened to unify the Estonians in New York. 77 members were present, and the “Unified Estonian Organization” was created.
Since then, the Society has served as the center and focal point of Estonian activity in New York.
Explore our website, check out our events and let us welcome you to the House in the near future.

Your donation is very welcome

Thank you for believing in the New York Estonian House and its mission.
Together, we can create an even stronger community. With your donations, the NYEES can continue to keep the New York Estonian House alive -a place for Estonians from the world over who visit New York, as well as our local Estonians.
We can continue our traditional events including the Estonian School and Choirs, but we need your financial help to keep all of this working.

We hope you feel inspired to give a gift today.
