Celebrate Rosh Hashanah With Traditional Eats Thanks To These Bakeries

Category: Food

From Sept. 25 through Sept. 27, one of Judaism’s holiest times will be celebrated when the Jewish New Year – Rosh Hashanah – falls on the calendar. During the two-day event, those who practice love to indulge in sweet foods that will hopefully attract a sweet coming year. 

If you’re heading to a Rosh Hashanah celebration, you’ll likely find items like challah (bread shaped into spirals), honey cake and more on the table. Want to join in with traditional eats? These bakeries offering Jewish items near your Elm apartment can help you do just that. 

Breads Unlimited, located at 6914 Arlington Rd, Bethesda which is a 10 minute walk from your Elm apartment, is a compact, counter-serve bakery supplying breads, bagels and pastries including cookies and cakes.

Breads Unlimited opened in 1981. The sense of tradition that was evident in its offerings from the start continues to this day. Here, you can find challah bread, five kinds of rye bread baked fresh daily, eight varieties of Danish, handmade, all-butter croissants and more.

The Red Bandana Bakery, located at 8218 Wisconsin Ave #101, Bethesda which is a four minute drive from your Elm apartment, serves gluten-free and vegan cakes and pastries, plus self-serve breakfast and lunch light fare in a homey stop.

Owner Jaimie Mertz went to culinary school in 2011 with the plan to become a pastry chef, and a year later doctors put her autistic brother on a gluten-free diet to try to help with behavioral issues. Jaimie began modifying the recipes she’d learned in school and on the job, and decided there was a need for a bakery that was gluten-free to avoid any cross-contamination.
