Westport bagel store reopens as certified kosher bagel provider

A bagel store in Westport that recently reopened took a unique step to making its bagels truly blessed.



Alex Perdomo, the owner of Bagel Maven on Route 1, brought in a rabbi to bless the bagels to help the store become a certified kosher bagel provider.



Rabbi Wall says the ingredients used at the store were already kosher. So, the owner only had to tweak the process of his food preparations. Rabbi Wall says he will make periodic checks at the store to make sure the standards are followed.



Bagel Maven is the first store in Westport to serve kosher bagels.
