TILLI Winter Session: I'll Have What She's Having: Illinois Holocaust Museum Virtual Tour


January 11, 2024


11:00 AM - 01:00 PM EDT



More than a place to get a meal, the Jewish deli is a community forged in food. “I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli explores how Jewish immigrants, mostly from Central and Eastern Europe, imported and adapted traditions to create a uniquely American restaurant. The exhibition reveals how Jewish delicatessens became a cornerstone of American food culture, and how delis served as a lifeline for many Holocaust Survivors and refugees who came to the United States. Get a taste of deli history through neon signs, menus, advertisements, uniforms, photographs, and film and TV clips. Join us online for a tour of the exhibit. Register here.
