Sabra Pizza in 5 Towns to Close

20130205-094249.jpgAfter 41 years serving the 5 Towns Jewish community on Central Ave (and thousands of HAFTR students), Sabra Pizza will be closing it’s doors on Feb 18th, 2013.

Not long after Ruthie’s, next door, closed and became incorporated into the Sabra restaurant, the largest of the area’s kosher pizza shops will be gone.

Remaining on Central Ave are other longstanding kosher pizza shops: David’s Famous, Jerusalem, and Shula’s.

Having been a mainstay in the community for decades, please comment below with your thoughts and memories of Sabra.

    This is so sad! They’ve been around for so long and are a part of Central Avenue’s history now. I will miss their delicious spinach pizza and vegetable soup :(

    I worked at Ruthies for 3 years. I was sad to hear that Ruthie passed away and that her family decided to close the business. It was great place to work and eat.
