Slathered on a bagel, stuffed into blintzes, the secret to “real” cheesecake—what’s more Jewish than cream cheese? And yet, the Jews who came to America from Eastern Europe in the late nineteenth century had never even heard of it. Join Rabbi Jeffrey Marx as he explores the history of cream cheese and how it became part of Jewish cuisine. Learn about where Philadelphia cream cheese really comes from, why today’s cream cheese bears little resemblance to the original, and how it brought some Jews from rags to riches. A Q&A follows the program.
