WHERE: Pico Glatt Market, 9427 W Pico Blvd, LA
Pico- Robertson known for it's major Jewish community and culture in the area. It's truly amazing how many cultural hubs there are in LA and how little we know about them having lived here substantial amounts of time. That's where we as CityGyd step in, do the research and plan the most unique and unexplored tours.
Come join us on an afternoon filled with culture, learning and great food at the legendary Pico- Robertson. First we begin our tour at the Pico Glatt mart, which is a strictly regulated Kosher Mart under the supervision of Kehilla. Food being Kosher among the Jewish community is highly essential as they at the earliest phases of history understood the patterns of Kashrut. One of the school of thoughts explain Kashrut, as God proving a prescription of foods to ensure the good health of Jewish people. It is also thought that "God knows that in all foods prohibited to the chosen people, elements injurious to the body are found."? We look in to some of these customs a little deeper.
Next we saunter on to David Solomon's book store, which is a pure Judaica store which provides a range of objects used by Jews for ritual purposes. This store has been specializing in everything Judaica for the past 35 years. They have a wide range of cultural products including jewelry, yad (a Torah pointer for reading Torah text), incense burners and modern menorahs.
Schnitzly is a kosher diner, which offers a minimum of ten different types of Schnitzel, which is widely known by Jewish people. Schnitzel is deep fried meat thinned meat, often coated with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs. Their famous sauces are created in the store.
