Nana Fromm remembers her family's business, Zonenberg's Kosher Food Market.
A multitude of German-Jewish owned businesses along the Division Street corridor allowed the Jewish community of South Bend to purchase products to accommodate their Kosher dietary regulations. One of these businesses included Zonenberg’s Kosher Food Market, which was located near the corner of Division and Taylor Street, on what is now known as Western Avenue.
Watch the video below to hear Nana Fromm remember her grandparents’ and parents’ role in running the family business.
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 shop, Sofan’s, across the street!
