    At the Jewish Table: Food, Family, and Heritage in Elmira

    Savor History At the Jewish Table

    An Exhibit On Display
    at the Chemung County Historical Society

    April 16 -September 29, 2018
    Monday-Saturday 10am-5pm

    At the Jewish Table is an exhibit inspired by the Elmira Jewish Community’s most well-known public event, the Jewish Food Festival. While the festival creates an atmosphere reminiscent of New York City’s Lower East Side at the height of Jewish immigration to America, Elmira had its own “lower east side,” a neighborhood, now vanished, which was once the center of Jewish worship, family life, and business.
