There's a wild world just a fifteen minute drive from Tel Aviv - Bnei Brak. This neighborhood is the ultimate "other" - so close, and yet it seems like there are generations separating it from the big city. It is surprising to discover how bustling, pleasant - and most importantly, delicious - this town can be at night. Bnei Brak is one of the most fascinating cities in Israel, and it has become a newly anointed culinary center, in thanks to it sixty years of food joints. If you want to taste Bnei Brak with all its flavors, you should skip the usual tours and join us on this unfiltered tour of this city.
You’ll do all of it with your eyes wide open and with a lot of wine involved. And there's no better time to do it than on a Thursday night: the city turns into a mega bazaar, with delicate-yet-potent smoked fish, turning up the "it's a Friday night" feeling with a Challah bakery that kicks you in all the five senses, and ends with a moment of silence in front of a bowl of Chulnt (a local stew).
We will try to understand what distinguishes this community from other Orthodox communities around Israel and abroad and what the differences and nuances mean within the community. Make sure you come hungry. Unfortunately, our tour in Bnei Brak is the only one which isn’t great for vegans. It is pretty awesome for vegetarians, though!
