As if Labor Day is not enough of a transition – back to work, back to school, back in town – for those of us who celebrate the Jewish holidays, the end of summer actually brings us forward into a new year. The High Holidays are exceptionally early this year: Rosh Hashanah begins the night of Wednesday, September 8th, just two days after Labor Day, and Yom Kippur follows quickly on its heels, starting at sundown on Friday, September 17th.
If you plan on celebrating the holidays, and want to be able to skip the line, call us to place your orders now, since spots for pre-orders book up quickly. (We’ve been receiving calls for High Holiday orders since April!)
Look at our delectable holiday menu and suggestions for your Rosh Hashanah table and for breaking the Yom Kippur fast, and then take this as a friendly reminder from the Russ family not to wait to give us a call.
If coming in to Russ & Daughters during the holidays is part of your tradition, as it is for many, rest assured that our kitchen, master slicers, and entire team will be working like meshuggenahs to provide the same menu in the store.
Russ & Daughters continues to hold an important place in the lives and traditions of so many of our customers, and as we enter our 97th year, that makes us feel humbled and energized to continue for another century, and many more generations to come.
Wishing you a sweet, healthy, and delicious New Year, from the entire Russ family and team,
Niki Russ Federman & Joshua Russ Tupper
