Challeh for a Bris(Manhattan)

bxgirl Dec 19, 2007 09:39 AM

I will be hosting the bris for my new grandson next Wednesday. Can anyone suggest where I can get a challeh in Manhattan for a Wednesday bris? I am sure there are many places which have challeh for shabbos, but what about getting a challeh for Wednesday(the day after Christmas)?

    Gertels Bake Shop
    53 Hester Street
    New York, NY 10002
    Phone: (212) 982-3250

    Located in the Lower East Side, this bake shop caters for people looking to buy traditional kosher baked goods. It happens to be Kosher (Hassidic Supervision) and they do bake on special order what’s called a S’eudah Challah, which is a big Challah used traditionally at the meal following the Bris. They bake for special order.

    I tried to look up a web site for them, but could not find. Sorry.

        From experience, Gideon's is open on Christmas, and certainly the day after.

        some bakeries should be able to do it especially if you special order. Kosher bakeries are not closed on Xmas. You could conact Chiffons in Bklyn and see if they will deliver it to you.
