"The Ruins of the Borscht Belt" Photography Viewing with the Artist

Join us for a photography viewing of "The Ruins of the Borscht Belt" and an intimate conversation with the artist. Marissa Scheinfeld has taken frequent trips back to her hometown region of Sullivan Country to photograph the remains of the Borscht Belt era. The surreal images depict the relics of a bygone and truly cherished time in American-Jewish history - the infamous Catskill resorts.

Light Refreshments and Coffee will be served.

This year's Jewish Heritage Festival marked the opening of the photo exhibit, The Ruins of the Borscht Belt by Marisa Scheinfeld.

Scheinfeld's photographic projects and books are in the collections of The Simon Wiesenthal Center in CA, The La Jolla Athenaeum in CA, The Edmund and Nancy K. Dubois Library at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, and The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation.
