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.

Dear Members of the New York Estonian Educational Society and friends of the Estonian House, 

First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who's been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. 
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic crisis situation, New York Estonian House will remain closed at least until Friday, May 15th. In making reopening decisions we follow official New York City guidelines. We are eager, as are so many, to open our doors to our guests- we can’t wait to see you all again! 
Soon enough we’ll resume our everyday activities but because soon is such a relative term in this matter, we are currently accepting room reservations only for the fall and winter 2020 and spring 2021 season.   

We thank you all for your continuous support, please stay well and see you soon!
Board of the Estonian Educational Society and the Estonian House Team

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.

We are a 501(c)(3) organization.  All donations and membership dues are tax deductible.
