Featuring Dr. Ted Merwin
In this entertaining, interactive presentation, Dr. Ted Merwin, author of Pastrami on Rye: An Overstuffed History of the Jewish Deli will explore the heyday of the deli, the changing representation of Jewish-American delis in music, film and television and the evolution of delis today.
