AMERICANS AND THE HOLOCAUST

The Delray library takes a serious look this fall at 1938, when a whopping 94 percent of Americans disapproved of the Nazi treatment of Jews in Germany; only 21 percent thought we should allow more German Jews to emigrate to the U.S. When we think about the Holocaust, we usually think about what was going on in Europe, not what was happening here at home. “Americans and the Holocaust”—an exhibition mounted by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum—sheds light on this often-overlooked aspect of history. From Oct. 6 through Nov. 17, the 1,100-square-foot, interactive exhibition will be on display at the Delray Beach Public Library. The library will be partnering with the Delray Beach Historical Society, Florida Atlantic University and Atlantic High School, among others, to help us explore this important chapter in our history. 100 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, 561/266-0194, delraylibrary.org.

UP ON THE ROOF

With its collection of original art, design-focused luxury and floating-glasscube event space, The Ray will be making a generous contribution to the creative vibe in the Pineapple Grove Arts District. The display of large-scale sculptures and immersive art installations found throughout the boutique hotel, which is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, was designed to appeal to the international arts community as well as art-loving locals. But let’s be honest, most of us are just dying to check out the 22,000-square-foot rooftop pool deck, which has a bar and restaurant as well as a rooftop forest. 233 N.E. Second Ave., Delray Beach, 561/739-1700, therayhotel.com.

If you’ve never had frozen custard, you’ve been missing out. We have nothing against ice cream—in fact, we love ice cream—but frozen custard is even creamier, richer and, well, more of everything we love about ice cream. What makes it so amazingly wonderful and dear to our hearts? It is made with egg yolks and with less air and more butterfat than ice cream, giving it a thick, velvety lusciousness. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Now that Whit’s Frozen Custard has opened in Pineapple Grove, you can discover the joys of freshly made frozen custard for yourself. 200 N.E. Second Ave., Suite 114, Delray Beach, 561/865-7857, whitscustard.com.
