“I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli explores how American Jews imported traditions, adapted culture, and built community through the experience of food. In addition to showing how the Jewish deli forged an entirely new, quintessentially American cuisine by combining Central and Eastern European dishes with ingredients abundantly available in the United States, the exhibition traces the larger arc of the Jewish experience in the US during the twentieth century.

 

Exhibition organized and circulated by the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.
