Dear Rabbi,

What's a bagel?


Dear <Name@Withheld>,

A hole with dough around it! A bagel is an individual-sized, ring-shaped bread roll. It is made from yeast dough, briefly boiled and then baked.

The bagel has given rise to the ancient saying: The optimist sees the bagel, the pessimist sees the hole!
