Closing for Passover, 2014
In just about a month our Yellow Delis will close for one week. You will find these cheery notice displayed at our Delis until then:
We will be closed to honor the upcoming week-long festival:
The Days of Unleavened Bread
As you can tell by the name of this ancient Biblical festival, it has to do with the leaven in the BREAD. Well, we are famous bread bakers, who use lots of leaven daily as we bake, but our faith specifically bans leaven during this festival. Therefore, during this special week we will not be able to bake our breads. (If you want to know more about this festival, just ask. We would be glad to explain it to you.)
Thus, we will be closed the week of April 14-April 21
Please mark your calendar and do not plan your visits to The Yellow Deli during that week. We love our customers and hope you will understand the importance of the life we share as a community in running this Yellow Deli for you.
Your friends at The Yellow Deli
We have been considering the issue of continuing to bake and serve leavened bread in our delis and bakeries during the Days of Unleavened Bread.
Ex 12:19 says, “For seven days no leaven is to be found in your houses. If anyone eats what is leavened, that person will be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is a sojourner or a native of the land.”
No longer then does it seem like we can bake and serve leavened bread in our delis during the Days of Unleavened Bread.
During this time we will do much to enhance our delis, so the benefits will be for our customers when we reopen. The service you receive comes from a special life, a different life, that we need to maintain the heart of. Closing during these festive times are a vital part of that.
We even trust this will be less confusing for our customers then opening and closing our delis for the high sabbaths, as we have in past years. Being closed for the seven days is much simpler!
We hope our customers will understand that this is testimony to the sincerity of our faith. Our faith must come first in our lives.
