New York Historical Society Exhibit: “I’ll Have What She’s Having: The Jewish Deli”

March 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Mark Russ Federman’s mother, Anne, serves customers at Russ and Daughters in 1939.

Discover how Jewish immigrants, mostly from Central and Eastern Europe, imported and adapted traditions to create a uniquely American restaurant. Learn how Jewish delicatessens became a cornerstone of American food culture. The New York Historical Society’s exhibition and virtual presentation explores the food of immigration, the heyday of the deli in the interwar period, delis and Broadway, stories of Holocaust survivors and war refugees who worked in delis, the shifting and shrinking landscapes of delis across the country, and delis in popular culture.

This online program will last 60 minutes.  The presentation will run approximately 45-50 minutes following by 10-15 minutes for Q & A.   Attendees will view a shared PowerPoint presentation delivered by the Society’s docent Kyle Einhorn and introduced by Kristi Tremblay, Associate Director, Group Sales and Docent Program.

All are welcome.
