You can find kosher wine at the supermarkets
Vons
Trader Joe’s
Ralphs
Albertsons
Etc.

No fresh meat available

Best advice , fly into lax do all your shopping and drive to Palm Springs

I walked from the Hyatt to chabad. Think it was maybe 20-30 minutes. Just FYI- the Hyatt felt very run down and needs a good refurbishment

Anybody knows of any decent rentals in the Rancho Mirage neighborhood? In the past I saw many closer to Palm springs on Airbnb, but now I don't see anything decent.
