Andrew Jacobs, the director of the new Borscht Belt Museum in Ellenville, N.Y., will talk about the history of the Catskills for the Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women’s November 28 general meeting. It’s set for 1 p.m., at Temple Emeth in Teaneck.

Mr. Jacobs, the president of the Borscht Belt Museum’s board, helped to create a cultural institution dedicated to the history and legacy of the Borscht Belt resort era. He’s also a reporter for the New York Times. In 2008, he directed and produced “Four Seasons Lodge,” a documentary about a community of Holocaust survivors in upstate New York that was based on an article he wrote for the newspaper.

The event is free for members; there’s a $15 charge for nonmembers, payable at the door. For information, go to www.ncjwbcs.org or call (201) 385-4847.
