Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, is one of the most important holidays of the Jewish year. For 10 days, followers of Judaism contemplate their sins, not only against God but also against other people. It is a time of renewal, where believers try to right their wrongs and reconcile—making it ultimately a happy occasion and a celebration of peace.
Yom Kippur includes a 25-hour fast, beginning before sunset on Friday evening and ending after nightfall the next day. There is no eating, drinking or work allowed during the Sabbath—including cooking. Which means, a typical breaking-the-fast feast offers already prepared and ready-to-eat dishes.
The experience places a big role on the food served and enjoyed. So, what is better than something simple, but delicious, delivered right to your door? This year, Yom Kippur falls on Sept. 13, so visit the Wicked Jack’s Tavern to select a bunt cake for your guests, to bring to a break-fast celebration or to give to a friend on this special high holiday.
