Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus

In 2013, on the Thursday evening before the first Shabbos Project in Johannesburg, South Africa, 2,500 women gathered to share in the joy and tradition of making challah.

The Shabbos Project’s goal is to unite Jews around the world to keep and share in one complete Shabbat each year. As a lead up event, The Great Big Challah Bake is a celebration of the tradition of making challah for Shabbat. Transcending all differences in ideology and affiliation, language and culture, the Challah Bake brings Jewish women together to share in a meaningful moment with thousands of other women worldwide.

Join more than 150 women from across Tidewater to participate in the mitzvah of making challah together. Women of all ages are invited to attend. A donation of $5 is suggested. RSVP is required as space is limited. Visit www. JewishVA.org/challah-bake or call Melissa Eichelbaum, Simon Family JCC program department associate, at 757-231-2304.
