This year, National Rugelach Day will be celebrated on Saturday, April 29th. We will be celebrating with The King of Rugelach, Alvin Lee Smalls ~ also known and loved as Mr. Lee, owner of Lee Lee’s Baked Goods in Harlem. It also happens to be Mr. Lee’s 81st Birthday!
We call him Mr. Lee, but his name is Alvin Lee Smalls, and he is a true Harlem institution, known for decades as The King of Rugelach. This April 29th, National Rugelach Day, Mr. Lee turns 80 years young!
