Discover Fairway for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

Rosh Hashanah (September 18th and 19th), the Jewish New Year, is one of the most religious Jewish holidays next to Passover, but it's also an occasion to enjoy a rich and festive meal with family. Food pairings are celebrated with symbolic gestures like dipping apples in honey to wish for a sweet new year. Other traditional foods include the Challah ( traditional egg bread) dipped in honey and the consumption of fish heads to represent fertility of the coming year.

One family that understands tradition and the importance of providing fine quality food is the Fairway Market family. Located in Paramus (and several locations in New York), Fairway is offering a full menu for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (September 27th and 28th) prepared by their in-house catering and meat department led by Meat Director Ray Venezia and Bill Owades who is the Kosher Foods Director. And Ray knows that the Fairway customers want the best meats at affordable prices.

“When it is most important to have the finest Kosher meats to serve family and friends, that’s when Fairway lowers its prices,” said Venezia, a third generation butcher, who oversees all meat departments in the five Fairway stores. “All our meats are under the strict Supervision of Rabbi Avrohom Marmorstein and you’d be hard pressed to find better chicken, brisket, silver tip roasts or ribeye steaks anywhere else.”

While the deadline to place an order from the Rosh Hashanna menu is Monday September 14th, you have until September 25th to order for Yom Kippur (
