This year, you have the opportunity to make your own bagels with a class led by bagel experts Reva Castellenti and Sam Silverman at Bagel Market in Midtown. The two-hour hands-on session will teach you the art of rolling, boiling, seeding, and baking bagels. You'll even get to take a dozen bagels home with you. The class will also delve into the history of bagels, and there will be a three-hour class on Monday, September 25th to break the fast, with more delicious food to enjoy.
Bagel Making Classes for Yom Kippur will be held on Saturday at 4 and 6:30 p.m., and on Monday at 6 p.m. Each class costs $150 and will take place at Bagel Market, located at 264 West 40th Street. For more information, visit nycbageltours.com.
