San Francisco Is A Tough Place To Be An Orthodox Jew

Heshy Fried blogs: “San Francisco isn’t like other cities, for a city its size it has a dismal amount of Jewish services for the observant folks. It has two kosher restaurants and a butcher, one of the kosher restaurants is not under a widely accepted hashgacha even though it is vegan and the other restaurant is what I and anyone else who has ever bothered trying it out a chillul Hashem (IE worst kosher restaurant in the world) which only stays open because of tourists. Sure there’s a mikvah, a couple of Jewish schools and now an eruv, but it isn’t a vibrant orthodox community by anyone’s standards.”
