EGG CREAM: Film Screening & Talk About the Iconic Soda Drink

April 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

What do we know about the beloved chocolate soda drink born on the Jewish Lower East Side? The egg cream contained neither eggs nor cream—it was a product of necessity and hardship, but a source of joy and sweetness. Filmmaking father-daughter duo Peter and Nora Claire Miller together examine the Jewish experience in America through a tour of egg cream establishments. Join the Museum at Eldridge Street for a talk with them about their search for the best egg cream in New York, a debatable origin story about the egg cream, and more!
