The 4th Annual Great Big Challah Bake will be one of thousands of similar events taking place around the world—and one part of The Shabbat Project —bringing Jews from all walks of life and across the spectrum of religious affiliations together to celebrate one full Shabbat. The project’s goal is to create an opportunity to rejuvenate family and community life, and strengthen Jewish unity around the world.

Darcy Bloch, chair of this years’ challah-making event, says she looks forward to growing the participation of the extremely successful 2017 Bake, “rising” from 150 women who gathered to mix, knead, and braid. Last year, approximately 200 pounds of flour, 50 pounds of sugar, 200 eggs, and gallons of oil and water, resulted in more than 200 challahs for Shabbat.

A suggested donation is $5 at the door, with RSVP required. For more information on Tidewater’s Great Big Challah Bake, to get involved in preparing for the event, or to RSVP, contact Leigh Casson at
