deli manDeli Man: A Beyond the Film Festival screening – Sunday, June 14th at 4:00pm & 6:30pm at Route 58 Deli located at 4000 Virginia Beach Blvd. (Loehmann’s Plaza)

The Simon Family JCC & Route 58 Deli in partnership with the Virginia Festival of Jewish Film presented by Alma* and Howard Laderberg present Deli Man, a documentary film produced and directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou. Ziggy Gruber, a third generation delicatessen man and owner of the world renowned deli, Kenny and Ziggy’s in Houston, Texas is the central figure in this film. The story of the American deli is the story of the Jews – their immigration, migration, upward mobility and western assimilation. The story of the deli isn’t Ziggy’s alone. It’s the history, anecdotes and humor that once made the local deli the virtual epicenter not only of food, but of family, laughter and community!

Come out Sunday, June 14 for either showing – 4:00pm & 6:30pm and enjoy the film and some great deli food at Route 58 Deli.

Tickets are $10. Advanced ticket purchase required for admittance. LIMITED SEATING. Call 321-2338, stop by the JCC Front Desk, or purchase at Route 58 Deli.
