Borscht Belt Cabaret

Wednesday, November 1 @ 6:00 pm
Beth El Synagogue

The “Borscht Belt” was the trail of Jewish resorts in New York’s famed Catskill Mountains. Among the highlights of time at the resorts were the lavish dinners (the food, so-so, but the portions – oy!) and top entertainers who packed the theatres night after night. Join us as we are transported back to the heyday of Jewish resorts of New York’s famed Catskill Mountains! We will enjoy dinner and dancing, an open bar, and the best entertainment this side of the Mississippi!
It’s a night to get dressed up, laugh, sing along, and enjoy a “night on the town”!

6:00pm – An intimate performance by Cantor Ben Tisser and the Sid Engel Orchestra
(Dinner and Dancing not included in Show Ticket Price)

7:15pm – Showtime! Starring Ben Tisser, featuring Herschel Fox (Jewish comic) and Talya Smilowitz (guest singer). 
Accompanied by the Sid Engel Orchestra.

Dressy cocktail attire requested – vintage cocktail attire encouraged!
