It’s pretty much impossible to tell the history of the Jews if you ignore the subject of food. So it’s not very surprising that one of the most popular historical tours of the LES incorporates herring, rugelach and halvah. The LES Jewish Conservancy is getting ready for the 7th annual “Noshing Tour Extravaganza.” The day begins with rugelach, and coffee ends with a sampling of foods from a classic Eastern European kiddish of herring, arbis, potatonick, schnapps, dried fruit and halvah. In-between, participants see such key LES landmarks as the Angel Orensanz Center, the Stanton Street Shul and Congregation Chasam Sopher. The event takes place at 11am on December 26th. Tickets are $24 and must be purchased by December 22nd. For more information, visit the Conservancy’s web site.
