For many families, the smell and taste of challah highlights the memory of countless special moments. Women who make it find both hand and heart in the dough – the kneading a process of spiritual growth and awareness. This is a casual event to chat about Challah’s importance to Shabbat, answer questions about its history and provide hands-on instruction to make one's own dough and perfect braid. Stop by to learn the age-old technique and enjoy conversation about food, whether stories from your own table or tips on favorite restaurants. Each participant takes their challah home to bake and proudly serve at the table of their next Shabbat celebration.
