(Norms) Smoked Fish Atonement (Upper West Side)


They used to sprinkle blood on the insides of the Tabernacle tent on Yom Kippur. Today, the  Upper West of New York prepares at Zabar’s for the break-fast to the Day of Atonement, buying up all the salty, smoked fish. With apologies to the Mizrachi community, gemar chatimah tovah and thank you Yitz L. for the concept and photo.
