ייִדן און די מיטאָלאָגיע פֿון קרעם קייז

Santa Monica Synagogue (Sha’arei Am) and the world’s foremost cream cheese maven.

The Great American Cream Cheese Myth is that Jews introduced cream cheese to America.  But, in reality, there was no cream cheese in the shtetl. American Yankees developed the cheese decades before the Eastern European migration.  So who created cream cheese and where was it created?  And when and how did it become the great shmear it is?
