Servatii is a unique bakery to shop in any day but the holidays are always a favorite time for me. The distinct options that Servatii offers for many holidays always spark feelings of joy and memories through us all. In the stores, seasonal items remind us of seasons changing and we gear up for the next big holiday.
Did you know however that Servatii has offerings for holidays less known about in our culture? Starting this Tuesday, September 15th, Servatii will be offering Round Challah and Honey Bundt Cakes for the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. These days are very Holy days for the Jewish community. We at Servatii love to have options available for these special days.
Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of introspection and repentance that culminates in the Yom Kippur holiday, also known as the Day of Atonement. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two “High Holy Days” in the Jewish religion. During these days, there will be fasting and specific prayers prayed.
During this time every year Servatii makes available the Round Challah and Honey Bundt cake for the family and religious dinners and feasting. The round Challah is rich egg bread in a round loaf and the Honey Bundt cake is a honey flavored cake with slivered almonds on the sides. It is also topped with an apricot glaze.
If you would like to try these items you can find them in stock at our Hyde Park, Blue Ash, or Symmes locations. You can also call any of the stores and order these items in advance. We highly value everyone in our communities and are honored to be able to offer items of tradition to everyone! On Rosh Hashanah, we say “Shanah tovah um’tukah,” which means “May you have a good and sweet new year.
