Food for thought: you can eat pickles or you can make a living off of them. Tonight you can get a taste of both.

LA mag’s restaurant critic Patric Kuh, who recently ranked the 10 best delis in Los Angeles, will conduct a pickle tasting based on his finds. Following that, filmmaker Dalit Kimor will screen her documentary, “Pickles, Inc.” about eight Arab-Israeli widows living in the Galilee, who achieved financial independence through a business venture of “pickling” vegetables.

With children at home, little education and no formal business experience, the women hurdled significant obstacles to create the Azka Pickle Collective. As business grew, they faced the challenges of managing work and motherhood, developing a market for their goods and expanding to stores throughout Israel.

After munching and the movie, there will be a Q&A with the director - a pretty pickle for a Wednesday night.

“Pickles and a Movie.” 6:30 tasting, 7:30 screening. Free. Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, 8844 Burton Way, Beverly Hills. (310) 288-3742. www.tebh.org.
