Brooklyn Bakery on Rechov Mea Shearim in Jerusalem is closing its doors for good this Friday, Erev Shabbos HaGadol.

The bakery, a favorite for Anglos in Israel, has been operating for 30 years – 22 years in Geulah and the past eight years in Mea Shearim.

The bakery is perhaps most renowned for its doughnuts as well as its black and white cookies.

According to a B’Chadrei Chareidim report, the closure is due to the fact that the owner is retiring and closing his factory in Givat Shaul as well as the store in Mea Shearim.
