Deli Man

by | Jun 8, 2015 | What’s Happening

Sunday, June 14, 4 & 6:30 pm, Route 58 Deli

The Virginia Festival of Jewish Film, presented by Alma* and Howard Laderberg, together with Route 58 Deli, present Deli Man, a documentary film produced and directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou.

Ziggy Gruber, a third generation delicatessen man and owner of the world renowned deli, Kenny and Ziggy’s in Houston, Texas is the central figure in this film. The story of the American deli is the story of the Jews—their immigration, migration, upward mobility and Western assimilation. It’s the history, anecdotes and humor that once made the local deli the virtual epicenter not only of food, but of family, laughter and community.

Tickets are $10. Advanced ticket purchase is required for admittance. Call 321-2338, stop by the JCC Customer Service Desk, or purchase at Route 58 Deli, 4000 Virginia Beach Blvd, Virginia Beach.
