This Tuesday evening, many Angelenos will begin at 24-hour fast (gasp!) in honor of Yom Kippur. This Jewish day of atonement is meant to reconcile the wrongs of the past year, like the time that you bought conventionally-raised beef, or were a total glutton at the county fair, pushing little kids out of line so that you could be the first to a fried Twinkie.

We're not too familiar with turning away food here at LAist, so news of a big break fast treat at Street was pleasant. Susan Feniger will be whipping up a Jewish feast for those observing the holiday, including dishes like blueberry-crusted noodle kugel, white cheddar and chive latkes, homemade lox and bagel platters with late harvest heirloom tomatoes, and a Sephardic pumpkin puree with a cauliflower hazelnut vinaigrette.

Feniger's special meal will take place on Wednesday, September 26 from 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. Visit their site for more info and reservation information.
