The town of Fallsburg and the hamlet of Mountain Dale present
the Borscht Belt Historical Marker Project.

Join them and the Borscht Belt Historical Marker Project for the second historic marker dedication at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 13 in the town of Mountain
Dale, N.Y.

Afterwards, stay for the opening of the exhibition “Day & Night: Return to the Borscht Belt.” This contemporary photography exhibit presents the work of photographers Marisa Scheinfeld & Isaac Jeffreys alongside archival material from the famed era. The juxtaposition of Scheinfeld’s naturally lit style versus Jeffrey’s theatrical, staged approach offers a manifold celebration of the Borscht Belt in its most contemporary state.

The Borscht Belt Historical Marker Project is a new group dedicated to identifying and commemorating locations significant to the history of the Borscht Belt, a celebrated era in American Jewish life. The project aims to fill a gap in local history, storytelling, and historic preservation by creating a large-scale historic marker trail complimented by various programming and a self-guided audio-driving tour that will traverse Sullivan and parts of Ulster counties.

This exhibit is made possible with funding from a Sullivan County Arts & Heritage Grant, funded by the Sullivan County Legislature and administered by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance. Additional partners include the Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation, Sullivan
Catskills Visitors Association, the Sullivan County Historical Society, the Town of Fallsburg and Visit Mountain Dale.
