Friday Night Lights #2: Catskills Memories with Photographer Marisa Scheinfeld


Born in Brooklyn but raised in the Catskills, photographer Marisa Scheinfeld’s latest project, The Borscht Belt: Revisiting the Remains of America’s Jewish Vacationland chronicles the region. This exceptional portfolio of photographs captures these legendary resorts in their current condition and includes commentary from such Catskills stars as Mel Brooks, Freddie Roman, and Larry King. Through slides and stories, Marisa will share the personal inspiration and impact of this project. Bring your Catskills stories to share, too, and enjoy a smorgasbord of smoked fish, blintzes, salads, and sweets that would make any Catskills chef proud.

The meal is prepared in a kosher synagogue kitchen, using all kosher ingredients, but without authorized supervision.
