[WATCH] Eat the Original NYC Knish at Yonah Schimmel’s Knish Bakery on the Lower East Side

Since 1910, Yonah Schimmel's Knish Bakery in the Lower East Side has been serving up delicious jewish pastries and knishes to a neighborhood that has changed hands a dozen times. In this video from local television network Thirteen, learn all about the original knish and how it's made at Yonah Schimmel's Knish Bakery.

Yonah Schimmel’s Knish Bakery has been selling knishes on the Lower East Side since 1890. THIRTEEN hosted a Facebook Live where we learned how to make knishes, talked about the importance of food in Jewish culture and - of course - tasted a few delicious knishes! Hugs & Knishes: A Celebration of Our Jewish Foods and Traditions, produced by WNET’s own David Anton, celebrates the rich history of Jewish food and its cultural impact on the community.
