Illinois Holocaust Museum “I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli


Get a taste of deli history at Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center through neon signs, menus, advertisements, uniforms, photographs, and film and TV clips. Plus, spark and share your own deli memories with fun photo ops and interactives!

More than a place to get a meal, the Jewish deli is a community forged in food. “I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli explores how Jewish immigrants, mostly from Central and Eastern Europe, imported and adapted traditions to create a uniquely American restaurant. Organized by the Skirball Cultural Center, the exhibition reveals how Jewish delicatessens became a cornerstone of American food culture. This interactive exhibit, complete with photo ops and hands-on displays, gives you a taste of deli history and nostalgia.
