What a trip.
On June 14, the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC opens “an exhibit”:http://www.mjhnyc.org/exhibitions_special.htm on Jewish vacationing. Really.
But think about. How many get-away spots are associated with Jewish culture in the U.S.? Summers in the Catskills. Day trips to Coney Island. Bus journeys to Atlantic City. Winters (and Golden Years) in Florida.
The exhibit is called The Other Promised Land: Vacationing, Identity, and the Jewish-American Dream and will run through Jan. 1.
Visitors will be able to see photos, artifacts, film footage and other materials from all the Jewish vacation spots of yore.
The museum is even asking Jews to offer their own vacation photos for consideration. You can send no more than two scanned or digital vacation photos to email@example.com.
Watch Dirty Dancing again, raise a glass of kosher wine and check it out.
