Monday, May 13, 10 am–1 pm

Invitation is non-transferable. Registration required with the form below.

“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.

For the Washington, DC, presentation of “I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli, the Capital Jewish Museum will incorporate new research and works from its collection to highlight the local Jewish community’s contributions to deli culture. Additions to the galleries include photographs, menus, and ephemera from Hofberg’s, Posin’s, and other Jewish-owned delicatessens.

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