Sorry, no etymologies found.
You could get a flaky rugulah at Gertel's Bakery on Hester Street.
He brought us up in southwest OH, but my Long-Island-raised-Irish-Polish-Catholic dad bought us babka & rugulah every chance he got when we were tiny, mostly during Christmas trips to visit the grandparents in Manhattan.
(Nothing against the great American Oatmeal Cookie, straight off the Quaker Oats box, which I adore, the rugulah, the hamentaschen, the tablet of shortbread ......)
Known since 1980 for great bagels, croissants, rolls, rugulah, danish, and butter cookies, The Bakery includes a coffee bar and full lunch menu.
