Join us for an online Women's Challah Bake for the New Year - between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur- all welcome - no baking experience needed!
Many have the custom to begin the Rosh Hashanah meals with round challahs. Some extend this custom and continue using round challahs for all Shabbat and holiday meals through Hoshanah Rabbah, the final day of judgment. These challahs are often filled with raisins and are sweeter than usual.
With Debbie Rosalimsky, legal recruiter by day...passionate challah baker/ teacher by night! Debbie has run challah events for up to 1500 people in person & online.
No prior baking experience required! First-time bakers welcome!
Event co-sponsors & thanks:
