3202 Shalom Way, South Bend, Indiana 46615
A multitude of South Bend German-Jewish businesses allowed the Jewish community of South Bend to purchase products to accommodate their Kosher dietary regulations. One of these businesses included the Zonenberg Kosher Food Market, which was on what is now Western Ave where you are standing (but on the northwest corner).
Because much of the Jewish population lived in this area and worked at local factories it was important for the businesses they frequented to be nearby so many of them were in this area. People in our community remember shopping at Zonenberg’s with their parents or at the second Kosher butcher across the street!
Thanks to Indiana Humanities for awarding us a grant for this project and to all the volunteers who helped put this together (especially past and present community members who agreed to tell us their stories).
