Looking to order in for Rosh Hashanah in STL? These 9 businesses help with your holiday meal


Does Rosh Hashanah ever fall at the “right time?” This year the Jewish New Year falls on the weekend: The holiday begins on the evening of Friday, Sept. 15 and runs through Sunday, Sept. 17. 

Some people are thrilled about this calendrical confluence — it takes over the weekend and does not interfere with school or work. Others don’t like it for the very same reasons.

For those who strictly observe Jewish laws, there’s the added element of figuring out how or when to cook the holiday meal when using the stove or oven is not permitted from sundown Friday evening until Saturday night.

Fortunately, for those who don’t have the bandwidth this year to cook a holiday meal — for whatever reason, we don’t judge! — so we have put together a list of 9 restaurants, caterers and bakers in St Louis preparing Rosh Hashanah meals this year that are available for pick up.
