A Headstone, a Cookbook and a Nosh
Lower East Side Tenement Museum | 103 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002 | tel 212.982.8420

When an artist stumbled upon a century-old headstone on East 4th Street, New York Times journalist Sam Roberts knew that it had a story to tell. Roberts discovered that it was created for Hinde Amchanitski, an immigrant entrepreneur who authored America’s first Yiddish cookbook. For this event, Roberts joins author Jane Ziegelman and the Tenement Museum’s Annie Polland to unravel the story of the headstone and sample some of Amchanitski’s delectable recipes.
