Photographer Marisa Scheinfeld spent years documenting the history and decline of New York’s Catskills region, dubbed the Borscht Belt because of its popularity with Jewish vacationers. Her photographs are now collected in a book, The Borscht Belt: Revisiting the Remains of America’s Jewish Vacationland, which she will sign after her talk.

In addition, the Brooklyn-based Matzo Project will be on hand to share samples of its artisanal matzo, in unique flavors.
