"The Shtetl" - Bakery and Tshulnt Tour in Bnei Brak

An experience of Jewish cuisine, a 24/6 non-stop city

 

Tour of the Tastes of Bnei Brak

An experience of Jewish cuisine, a 24/6 non-stop city: Great to meet you, Bnei Brak!

Program:

-A walk down bustling Rabbi Akiva Street, visiting unique stores.

-Seeing the Ponovezh Yeshiva from above and learning about the world of yeshivot.

-Listening to sounds of Hasidic melodies.

-Toasting a l’chaim with a shot- for those with strong throats!

-And wrapping up in a local restaurant serving traditional Jewish dishes whose distinctive tastes have been preserved over the generations.

Details:

Ten minutes travel from Tel Aviv will land you, as if in a time capsule, right into Shtissel, and nothing less than a Jewish city out of 19th century Eastern Europe. The atmosphere on the streets of Bnei Brak is full of extraordinary things happening in the city of Torah and Mitzvot.

The streets are bursting with bakeries, Judaica stores, small but full synagogues from which the sounds of prayer emanate at all hours of the day, display windows of unique design, and bustling and extraordinary characters.

And as night falls, those who knew the real secrets can press in among the alleys to find exceptional bakeries, kugel of a type you’ve never tasted before, and herring of any number of varieties and tastes.

You are about to be exposed to a fascinating world and to receive answers to the most intriguing questions:

Why don’t you see even one woman eating as she walks in the street?

Why is a floor-length skirt considered less modest than one that goes to the ankle?

Why are jeans not worn?

What is the difference between “kugel” and “kigel”?

What makes the Vizhnitz bakery the undisputed top challah brand?

This is a rare opportunity to glimpse this fascinating world, to reveal local secrets, and to have an intriguing conversation with a neighbor to whom you’ve never spoken.
