We, Bobby and Janice Jucker, co-owners of Three Brothers Bakery, have fought back after every disaster to befall our family owned bakery. We come from a history of survivorship – beginning with the founders’ liberation during the Holocaust. As many know, Hurricane Harvey brought four days of rain and over fifty inches of rainfall. It was a life changing storm. Harvey was our 4th flood, plus we survived and rebuilt […]
The High Holidays are coming up faster than we expected this year, with Rosh Hashanah right around the corner. This is the earliest it has been in more than 110 years!

Rosh Hashanah, as most of you know, is the Jewish New […]

Could Hamantaschen be going mainstream? According to Bobby Jucker, 5th generation baker and co-owner of Three Brothers Bakery, “Based on our daily sales, I believe the Hamantaschen will take on a life similar to the bagel or ruggelach.

We received one with a little Chanukah rock! Great Chanukah video on YouTube – Candlelight – The Maccabeats – Hanukkah Hadassah has a site for virtual Chanukah. You can light the menorah online. Of course […]
