Movie Afternoon at Am Shalom

Deli Man

Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015

at 12:30 p.m.

Cost: $10.00/includes lunch

Join us at Am Shalom for a special movie afternoon. We will be watching the ‘Deli Man.’ This documentary focuses on Ziggy Gruber, who co-owns a large deli in Houston and is also the grandson of the original owner of the Rialto Deli, the first Kosher deli to open on Broadway in New York City in the 1920s. The deli is the main love in this man’s life. While the film also covers other famous Jewish delis in Manhattan, Queens, Los Angeles and San Francisco and their histories, the emphasis is on the cultural aspects of the food and how the culture and the desire for this food is disappearing. To go along with the theme – come and have a traditional deli pastrami sandwich, with coleslaw salad, kosher pickle, chips and a drink!
