Learn how to make homemade bagels for the Yom Kippur fast

After the fast ends at sunset on Yom Kippur, in many homes the meal of choice comes from the appetizing counter, with smoked fish, cream cheese and bagels. This year, these bagels could be made at home if you attend a class taught by bagel experts Reva Castellenti and Sam Silverman on Saturday at 4 or 6:30 p.m., at the Bagel Market in Midtown. Or maybe you just want to learn how to make bagels without any observation. Either way, the two-hour hands-on session involves rolling, boiling, seeding and baking the bagels, then taking a dozen home. Eatable bagels with spreads, as well as beer and wine, will be served and the history of the bagel will be revealed. There will also be a three-hour fast-breaking class on Monday, September 25 at 6 p.m., with more food to eat.
