Sunday, May 7, 2-5 PM
Admission: $5, available at the door

Join us as we bid farewell to our exhibition, Heroes of the Knish: Making a Living and Making a Life. This show traced the history of the iconic New York City street food from its origins in Eastern Europe to its arrival in the US with Jewish immigrants, to its popularization through early knish makers such as Mrs. Stahl, Mano Hirsch, Ruby the Knishman, and Yonah Schimmel.

The event will celebrate the knish in style, with live music from All That Jazz (Rachel Levine on vocals, Christopher Bandini on guitar) and a curator’s talk from Laura Silver, author of Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food.

We’ll serve an international¬†spread of knishes and knish cousins such as dumplings from Vanessa’s Dumpling House, pierogi from classic Greenpoint spots, and more!
