Join us at the Table.

This year, Helaine Green, our expert baker, will guide us in braiding our dough into a “Shlissel,” or key challah, a tradition often observed on the first Shabbat after Passover, believed to bring good livelihood. 
*Gluten free table will also be available.

Challah is more than bread; it’s a symbol of togetherness.

Bringing people to the table and sharing our rich traditions and food is key to strengthening bonds and building community.

Bakers 10+ of all backgrounds welcome!

Our table is open to everyone, regardless of background or experience. Whether you’re a seasoned baker or trying Challah for the first time, there’s a place for you at our table.

How it works: We’ll supply you a bowl and ingredients as well as guided instructions on how to prepare and braid a key-shaped challah. Once finished, you can take your challah home to bake and share at your Shabbat table! All the items you use are yours to take home, including a swag bag just for you.

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.

Who will you invite to the table?

Share your challah with friends and family at Shabbat the following day. Is there someone who would love to learn about your Jewish culture and traditions through food? We challenge you to invite them to your table.
