Check your local Yellow Deli for exact closing and opening times. We hope you will understand the importance of the life behind the Yellow Delis whose menu, atmosphere, and friendly service you enjoy. Follow link for their photos and addresses. Since bread baking is at the heart of our Deli menus, and the houses and the people of Israel are to be free of every kind of leaven, we will be closed for the following days.
Paul the apostle took our understanding of leaven into a new realm, one only hinted at in the Old Covenant:
Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. (1 Corinthians 5:6-8)
So the mew people of Israel keep the feasts in a new and living way, removing any thought that would divide them and mar or hurt their fellowship. It is a very special time in our lives, one we look forward to each year.
To remove all leaven is then a very appropriate beginning for our year!
Our delis will re-open and once again we will be happy to serve you the fruit of the Spirit. Our home are always open. During that week, though, you will only find unleavened bread in our homes and on our tables.
