SISterhood Challah Bake
The SISterhood First Annual Challah Bake held on March 10th was a smashing success. 100 women came together in Kaplan Auditorium for an evening of sisterhood, learning, and fun. SISterhood member, Ellen Bond, was the guide for the evening. She guided the group through the dough preparation and the kneading. While the dough was rising, Rabbi Shira Wallach taught us more about the history of the ritual behind making challah and how it brings women together. Finally, Ellen taught the group how to make three different shapes of challah: smaller rolls, three-strand braid, and four-strand braid. Everyone was excited to take home their loaves to bake and their bowl, spoon, and adorable apron for future challah making.
Thank you to the AMAZING committee members Barbra Applebaum, Roz Benjet, Nancy Brickman, Ellen Bond, Ann Cobert, Randee Cope, Amy Harberg, Dora Rudberg, Belindy Sarembock and the outstanding co-chairs Kimberly Ross and Leslye Geller.
