Seders & Cigars – A History of Jews in Tampa
A story of America selected for our edification and enjoyment.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, facing conscription and consequent persecution in Europe, Jewish immigrants came to Tampa, particularly West Tampa and Ybor City, and opened retail businesses to support the demand created by the rapidly expanding cigar industry. Family members and extended family members followed one another here in search of a better life.
This documentary premiered in March 2019 at the Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival and is the result of four years of interviews and editing by filmmaker Barbara Rosenthal.
Enjoy a FREE screening of the movie, made possible by the Miami Jewish Film Festival. The link below shall be active until July 20th.
