Spring Open House May 28 from 7-9pm.
In 2005, the Historical Association of South Haven mounted an exhibit and hosted events celebrating the “Catskills of the Midwest – The Jewish Resort Era in South Haven”. It was such a resounding success and we have had so many requests to revisit the exhibit that, after 10 years, we elected to present it again.
The exhibit will open during the Spring Open House that takes place on May 28 from 7-9pm. (The exhibit will be at the Hartman School building, home to the Historical Association of South Haven, throughout the summer and is free and open to the public.)
On June 26, in cooperation with the First Hebrew Congregation, a progressive traditional Jewish brunch will be served at the Hartman School building beginning at 11am. The tickets for the brunch are $10 each and will be available at the door as well as at Lakeshore Paint/Artworks and the Hartman School on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 9am and 3pm.
There is no charge to view the exhibit and it is open to the public. There will be a free shuttle trolley for ticket holders to the First Hebrew Congregation Synagogue for desserts and entertainment by the Klezmedics, a Klezmer band playing traditional eastern European Jewish music. The trolley will make scheduled runs between the two venues between 12 noon and 3pm.
