Suggestions for a Yom Kippur party please

My relatives begged me to have a Yom Kippur party because they love my cooking (which is very sweet). I have no idea what to make. I can cook almost anything. I really do not have any idea what some typical dishes might be. We are not kosher at all, so I am open to all suggestions.

  1. Are you going to do a pre-fast meal on Friday night or a break fast on Saturday? Break fasts tend to be much lighter.

      actually not always. In our circle we find the fast easier of we eat lightly before and then eat more at break fast. I wouldn't really think of either as a party.

        See, my family's always been the other way around - a big meal beforehand and then a lighter break fast.

    2. My menu for Friday - pre-fast - for about 15 people - split pea soup, stuffed cabbage, chicken mirbella, kasha, broiled salmon, hasselback potatoes, roasted cauliflower, broccoli, and brussel sprouts, and dessert - applesauce, assorted cookies, fruit and if I am up to it - a coffee cake.

        If it is post fast traditional items include a sweet Luckshen or noodle kugel, quiche, egg and challah souffle, bagels and lox -

      2. I would say anything cooked by my mother-in-law. That should be atonement enough for anybody.
