BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Temple Shaaray Tefila in Bedford Corners will be screening The "Sturgeon Queens" on Thursday, Dec. 25 at noon.
Temple Shaaray Tefila is at 89 Baldwin Road in Bedford Corners.
The film depicts 100 years, four generations and 1,800,000 pounds of pickled herring from Russ & Daughters.
The program, which starts at noon, features the movie, "The Sturgeon Queens," a traditional Jewish bagel brunch and discussion with the movie’s director, Julie Cohen. “100-year-old Hattie Russ Gold (deceased April, 2014) and her sister 92-year-old Anne Russ Federman have life stories that hit all the key notes of the Jewish immigrant experience: hard work, humor, romance, and a little tsuris. Hattie and Anne are the two surviving daughters from the famed lox and herring emporium Russ & Daughters on the Lower East Side when they appeared as the stars of The Sturgeon Queens.”
Tickets for the screening are being sold for $10. RSVP to Beverly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-666-3133.
