Middle Eastern restaurant celebrating Rosh Hashanah with family meals fundraiser


Pita Chip, located at 1623 Big Oak Road in Yardley’s Oxford Oaks Shopping Center, is celebrating Rosh Hashanah again this year by offering family meals that benefit a great cause.

The quick-serve modern Middle Eastern brand will serve up “Rosh Hashawarma” family meal dinners to guests beginning Friday, Sept. 15, through the final night of the Jewish high holiday on Sunday, Sept. 17. This is the restaurant’s second annual Rosh Hashawarma celebration.

Proceeds from Rosh Hashawarma sales will benefit Congregation Kol Emet in Yardley. Dinners cost $57.84 each, which represents the new year (5784) on the Jewish calendar, and pre-orders are now being taken on Pita Chip’s website. Rosh Hashanah takes place from sundown Friday, Sept. 15 through sundown Sunday, Sept. 17.

The family-style meals, which feed four people, include customer’s choice of proteins, hummus, rice, lettuce, toppings, sauces, pita bread, and raspberry rugelach.

“We unveiled this special last year, and our customers absolutely loved it,” said Omar Alsaadi, co-founder of Pita Chip. “We do this so families can sit back and relax and enjoy the holiday without having to cook... We also love that we are able to partner with Congregation Kol Emet, and give back in the process.”

While Pita Chip also has locations in University City and at Temple University, the holiday special will only be made available at the Yardley outpost.

Pita Chip’s menu includes scratch-made hummus and sides, as well as salad bowls, rice bowls, and wraps featuring chicken shawarma, beef shawarma, falafel, and roasted vegetables. Learn more and place “Rosh Hashawarma” orders by visiting
