A few more seconds and you are in Bnei Brak ...
All you need to know about our adventurous tour:
We'll be starting off the tour at our meeting point, aka a local deli, on the outskirts of the city, where we'll taste foods that are typically served at every Simcha, Kidush or Shalom Zachar (a celebration held at the synagogue after the birth of a son). Delicious trays of smoked herring, cheeses and other delicacies will be waiting for you to savor.
From there on, we will continue to Rabbi Akiva street, Bnei Brak's main thoroughfare, the local Champs-Elysees if you will, where we will get a good look at the most beautiful & historical places in the city, including the Great Synagogue and the mythological Ponevezh Yeshiva.
After we have had our fill of taking in the sights of this vibrant city, we'll be stopping at a good bakery to snack on a selection of piping hot pastries fresh out of the oven. Of course we'll have to leave room for the highlight, which is yet to come!
After getting an earthly taste of the city we'll be moving on to a more spiritual orientated aspect of the holy city- the Itzkowitz Synagogue, where minyanim are held with 24/7 (Maariv anyone?).
Our final stop will be at the local Cholenteria, where we'll be getting a steaming & satisfying bowl of Cholent- the 'real deal'! (Vegetarian option available) while hearing stories about the famous dish.
