This event will benefit JSV’s Community Mikvah. Attendees are encouraged to make an additional gift in support of the only Community Mikvah in the South Bay. If you would like to learn more about the Mikvah or schedule a tour email [email protected].

How it works: We’ll supply you a bowl and ingredients as well as guided instructions on how to prepare and braid a round challah. Once finished, you can take your challah home to bake and share at your Rosh Hashanah dinner table! All the items you use are yours to take home, including a swag bag just for you.
*A gluten-free table will also be available.

Please note: Photos will be taken at the event. If you do not wish to be photographed, we will provide you with a special wristband.
