Man-O-Manischewitz: Brooklyn’s Wine in a Kosher USA

Overview

Created in the 1930s for a Jewish market, Manischewitz became the first branded kosher product to achieve a predominantly non-Jewish consumer base—and one that was overwhelmingly African American. Endorsed by leading black musicians and actors in the 1950s and 1960s, and a fixture at Jewish Passover Seders, Horowitz will trace Manischewitz’s pathbreaking role in modern kosher food and discuss why its contribution has been forgotten.
