New City's Challah Fairy Sweetens The Jewish New Year

NEW CITY, N.Y. -- The Challah Fairy is all about making your dreams come true.

At least your Rosh Hashanah dreams. Owner Chanalee Fischer has tripled production and is working overtime in an effort to make sure everyone gets the challahs they need for the Jewish holiday, which begins at sundown Sunday, Oct. 2.

Rosh Hashanah is, she said, the biggest challah holiday and "an exhausting time of the year."

But the always cheerful Fischer, who's known locally at "The Challah Fairy" thanks to her bakery on North Main Street in New City, knows folks need their kneaded bread to complement their chicken soup and roasts.

"We want to make sure everyone has a very sweet holiday," she said.

Among her top-sellers: crumb with vanilla crumbling. There's also sesame, everything, cinnamon, chocolate chip, raisin, cinnamon raisin, whole wheat gluten-free, and, oh yeah, the traditional plain.

Fischer said the key to her success is not only the love she puts into each product, but her personality. "I love schmoozing with people," she said.

The Challah Fairy is at 170 N Main St., (845) 323-4582.

Other places to get challah include the following. Call ahead for availability and hours.
