LETTER: Jewish or Italian?

I don't know anything about the library, library system, or how they operate; however, I must set the record straight...rugelach (there are quite a few accepted spellings) is a pastry/delicacy of Jewish descent.

I might also add, as a self-proclaimed aficionado, it is very tough to find a decent piece of rugelach, as with most other good/high-end pastries, here in Lancaster County...the birthplace of the 'doughy roll'. A good sign are those that are sold by the pound, not by the piece. Locally I would recommend Binderup's and La Dolce Vita...yes that is an ITALIAN bakery serving a JEWISH treat.
