New York Estonian House

Estonian Educational Society

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.

Uskumatu, kui elav eestlus USAs on! Olge sama tublid edasi ja ärge unustage kodumaad!

Nii tore, et lõpuks siia jõudsin! Hubane ja armas atmosfäär! Jõudsin Eestimaa südamest! Hoidke seda imelist paika!

Mis on kodu, kus on kodu, mis on kodukoht? Siin on kindlasti üks hubane Eesti kodu. Aitäh kogu külalislahkuse eest! Palju indu edaspidiseks!

- Maili Koorep (Tartust)  


This place is awesome! Thank you for having us! I look forward to seeing you again!

Selle maja seintest õhtub väärikat ajalugu. Selle maja inimestest kiirgab siirast huvi ja sooja sõbralikkust. Nautisime Eesti Majas vastuvõttu, mida austasid oma kohalolekuga Eesti Vabariigi peaminister Jüri Ratas, haridus- ja teadusminister Mailis Reps ja paljud teised Eesti elu edendajad. Aitäh ilusa õhtu eest!

- Rello Veinthal Tallinna Tehnikaülikooli teadusprorektor


Soe Ameerikalik vastuvõtt, aga eesti keeles. Aitäh!

- Perekond Maikalud Põltsamaalt
