    Bagels on the Boardwalk: A Tour of Jewish Venice Beach with the Jewish Historical Society

    This tour is sold out. Please look for more tours during the Fall term. On Independence Day, 1905, Abbott Kinney opened "Venice of America" as a resort on the Pacific for high-brow patrons of the arts and culture modeled after its Italian namesake. Ten years later, with its amusement piers and carnival atmosphere, the area became known as "Coney Island of the West." From the first High Holy Day services in 1914, Jews have been a part of the scene that makes Venice, California a place unlike any other. Join us for an end of summer half-day's walking tour with the Jewish Historical Society of Southern California focusing on Jewish Venice’s past, present and future. We'll start with bagels, shmoozing and a special screening of the Academy Award-winning documentary Number Our Days with members of Jewish Family Service's Israel Levin Senior Center, then enjoy sunshine and cool summer breezes as we trace the area's colorful Jewish history. For those of you joining us Sunday, August 20, for this tour please note that we will meet promptly at 9:30 am for bagels and coffee at Israel Levin Senior Adult Center of Jewish Family Service 201 Ocean Front Walk Venice, CA 90291 Read More
