Traditional Break-the-Fast Foods

in About Yom Kippur


The Yom Kippur fast is followed by a joyful meal with family and friends, and is traditionally composed of light, breakfast-like food – eggs, cheese and bread.

One would expect to eat round challah with hummus, baba ganouj and other spreads.

Fresh fruit, blintzes, noodle kugels, bagels
and lox and other foods that are gentle on the empty stomach are served.

Italian Jews traditionally serve fish with pine nuts and raisins. Indian Jews might serve coconut puff pastries for dessert.
