[Site description appears on separate sign] Mayberg Bakery
Here, at 8 Borochov Street, was the first bakery in the neighborhood. The bakery was established by the Mayberg family in 1924. Before it was established, the bread from Tel Aviv was brought in sacks on donkeys. The bread would come crushed, and its taste would be bland. The Mayberg family brought the knowledge for baking bread from Russia. The family grandfather built a large Arabian tabun in the yard, and the grandmother baked delicious breads, known everywhere. Grandpa Mayberg, riding his donkey, would bring the bread home. Eventually the demand for breads increased, and more ovens were built. The housewives baked the "cholent" they prepared for Shabbat, as well as cakes and cookies in large tin molds.
