How well does Americas 2nd most populous Jewish city reciprocate the love from their Jewish fans? Dodger Stadium held its first, full-season offering kosher diners hot frankfurters at home ballgames in 2016.

Jewish Community Day is part of the Dodgers marketing to regional ethnic groups. L.A. Dodgers V.P. of Ticket Sales, David Siegel discussed their annual Jewish Community Day with JooTube in the accompanying videos.

David Goldshan's 30-Years After friends' got Hebrew t-shirts
Jewish Community Day attracts synagogue and cultural groups
says Tanaz Golshan of Iranian-Jewish, "30-Years After"
Temples and cultural groups often buy tickets in blocks- which brings people (such as single females) who might not ordinarily come to a game on their own during the season. Iranian-Jewish group, 30-Years After is one such group, its members David Gobahar and Tanaz Golshan explained.

In an interview with JooTube in a prior season, the famous L.A. sports radio host, Vic "the Brick" Jacobs discussed the Jewish angles of his relationships with various Dodger players'- primarily centering around their dining idiosyncracies. (Ironically, Vic was diagnosed with stage three colorectal cancer in March 2017 and we wish him a complete recovery of body and spirit).


Jeff's Gourmet Kosher Sausages can be found in the Right Field Pavilion and on Jewish Community Day, also on the Left-Field Reserve, Level 31 above 3rd Base.
