American Jewish Historical Society Hosts Screening of “Streit’s Matzo and the American Dream” and Filmmaker Q&A

April 13, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| $10

The American Jewish Historical Society, in partnership with the Museum at Eldridge Street, will host a screening of Streit’s Matzo and the American Dream followed by a Q&A with the documentary film’s director Neil A. Friedman on Thursday, Apr. 13 at 7 pm in the Forchheimer Auditorium at the AJHS (15 West 16th Street).

In the heart of New York’s rapidly gentrifying Lower East Side stand four tenement buildings that housed the Streit’s Matzo factory since 1925. Streit’s Matzo and the American Dream is a story of tradition, of resistance and resilience, and a celebration of a family whose commitment to their heritage and to their employees is inspiring proof that the family that bakes together, stays together.
