Harlem Baker Bakes Jewish Desserts For The Jewish New Year Of Rosh Hashanah

Mr. Alvin Lee Smalls has been baking since he was a boy. But ruggelach is not something he discovered until he was a grown man. He saw a recipe for it in the newspaper and took that idea and ran with it.

He started baking all different kinds of ruggelach in his Harlem bakery — Lee Lee’s Baked Goods on West 118th Street near Frederick Douglass Boulevard.

If you care, help Harlem World Cares, celebrate, educate and inspire the next generation of Harlem Youth. Thank you.

Soon, he developed a cult following. Tour groups stop at his bakery, people order them by the dozens, and neighbors stroll by for a sweet afternoon snack.

Wednesday, the Jewish new year of Rosh Hashanah begins so he’s especially busy now, as those who celebrate want to start their new year on a sweet note.

And Mr Lee, as he is known, is 75. With no plans to slow down.
