Break-the-Fast Menu

What’s the best part of fasting on Yom Kippur? Well, BREAK-ing the fast of course! Most American Ashkenazi Jews I know break the fast with bagels, lox, cream cheese, orange juice and other treats, such as cucumber salad or noodle kugel.

I also like changing things up and making a spinach quiche and cheesecake! Here are a few ideas for your break-fast from our favorite recipes.

Wishing everyone a sweet new year, an easy fast and a meaningful holiday!
