At the Jewish Table: Heritage, Food, and Family in Elmira

“At the Jewish Table” is an exhibit inspired by the Elmira Jewish Community’s most well-known public event, the Jewish Food Festival (to be held April 15, 2018).  The festival is not only an opportunity to cook and share favorite Jewish foods, it is also an expression of the long history of Elmira’s Jewish community. This exhibit invites you to explore the migration and evolution of Elmira’s Jewish community into and through the city, its influence on the city’s trade, and the traditions of the table which have bound Elmira’s Jews together across cultures, congregations, families, and neighborhoods.


This exhibit was created in partnership with The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
