Ted Merwin: The Jewish Deli

Ted Merwin: The Jewish Deli

2:00 p.m.
Lecture and Discussion
FREE WITH MUSEUM ADMISSION

 

In New York, Baltimore, and other American cities, the delicatessen was the lifeblood and the linchpin of the Jewish community. The "soul food" and atmosphere it dished up became a quintessential part of American culture for Jews and non-Jews alike.  But as Jews moved into the suburban middle class, the deli lost its bite, giving way to other ethnic restaurants and cuisines. Can the deli be resurrected? Join us as Ted Merwin, assistant professor of Religion and Judaic studies at Dickinson College will show how the deli, which originated in Germany and Eastern Europe, developed in this country into a neighborhood institution on par with the synagogue.
