Eldridge Street Celebrates 10 Years of Egg Rolls and Egg Creams This Sunday


Aside from Nussbaum & Wu and Christmas Day, perhaps New York’s most enduring Jewish-Chinese culinary mash-up is the Museum at Eldridge Street‘s Egg Rolls and Egg Creams block party. It turns 10 this year, and will celebrate the anniversary this Sunday, June 6, from noon to 4 p.m. Expect plenty of the (kosher) eponymous concoctions, as well as klezmer music, mah-jongg, Yiddish and Chinese language lessons, a tea ceremony, synagogue tours, and more. Hanna Griff-Sleven, the synagogue’s programming director, sums it all up on the Eldridge Street blog, writing, “It’s New York after all, where benign indifference can turn into neighborly love, and egg roll meets egg cream for an afternoon of shared delight.”
