Deli dinner and Presentation by Ted Merwin, author of Pastrami on Rye: An Overstuffed History of the Jewish Deli

Mandell JCC, 335 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

6:00 pm

Due to an "overstuffed" response to the Pastrami on Rye program, we are moving the location to the Innovation Center at the Mandell JCC - Second Floor. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday at 6:00 PM!

Co-sponsored by JHSGH and The Crown Market

For much of the twentieth century, the New York Jewish deli was an iconic institution in both Jewish and American life. As a social space it rivaled—and in some ways surpassed—the synagogue as the primary gathering place for the Jewish community. In popular culture it has been the setting for classics like When Harry Met Sally. And today, after a long period languishing in the trenches of the hopelessly old-fashioned, it is experiencing a nostalgic resurgence.

Hartford Jewish deli history will also be included!

Come hear from the author of the first full length history on the topic and enjoy some delicious food from Crown.

Cost: $12 per person
