BEDFORD CORNERS, N.Y. -- Temple Shaaray Tefila's 'Shabbat on the Second' will present photographer Marisa Scheinfeld's Echoes of the Borscht Belt on Friday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the temple.

Marisa Scheinfeld has been documenting the dramatic degradation of some of the most famous Borscht Belt hotels and colonies in upstate New York. The Borscht Belt is a term used to describe the predominantly Jewish resort community in the Catskill Mountains from the 1920s through the 1970s.

Her images reveal ghostly remnants of the glory years of the era, as well as powerful evidence of nature's claim on the resorts and their landscapes and the new uses to which the spaces have been put in recent years.

She will present selections from the series which contains over 100 photographs, including a re-photographic series of "now" and "then" imagery composed by using found postcards and creating a mirror image of their present day depictions.
