Tidewater’s seventh annual Great Big Challah Bake serves up lessons and fun

Women of all ages spent an evening in November at B’nai Israel Congregation celebrating the Jewish tradition of preparing for Shabbat and the spiritual joys of making challah.

A partnership between B’nai Israel and the Konikoff Center for Learning of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, it was just one of thousands of similar events taking place around the globe—part of The Shabbos Project.

All ingredients and recipes were provided and each participant left with two challahs ready to make and enjoy for Shabbat.

“A good time was had by all,” says Stephanie Adler Calliott. “Girls and women of all ages across the country got their hands doughy and shared stories of their challah memories. Kudos to UJFT and B’nai Israel for their partnership and many thanks to the B’nai women who hosted everyone.”
