Yom Kippur Brings Break-Fast Anticipation for New York Jews
New York Post – The Yom Kippur fast may start Friday at sundown, but New York Jews have been salivating about their Saturday night break-fast meals for weeks.
“Yom Kippur is supposed to be a very solemn holiday. It’s a day of atonement. But some people admit to us secretly that it’s their favorite holiday, because the break-fast has become a great and delicious celebration,” says 36-year-old Niki Russ Federman, who holds down the fort at her family’s 100-year-old Lower East Side deli, alongside a cousin.
