Esn! Jews and Food in America (closed)

 

Esn! Jews and Food in America was on exhibit at the Yiddish Book Center from May 2010 - January 2011

The exhibition explores the American Jewish experience through food-related artifacts – signs, menus, ads, and packaging – and reflects the Jewish American search for a balance between acculturation and identity.  Items are from the collection of Rabbi Michael Strassfeld.
