ABOUT THIS EVENT
Shabbat has long been a means to reconnect with ourselves, our families and our community. And nothing embodies the Shabbat table more than delicious fresh baked Challah. For the first time ever, Lawrence and KU Jewish women from the many cross sections of our community will join for the ultimate Challah extravaganza. We will knead, braid, shape and pray together.
In addition to each woman making two challahs, we will hear inspirational words from world renowned speaker Mrs. Miriam Lispker, enjoy a dessert buffet, and a wonderful atmosphere of community spirit. In addition each participant will receive her very own beautiful Mega Challah apron to enjoy, long after the event ends.
Baking challah is a time-honored Mitzvah dating back to our Matriarchs. It is taught that when a woman bakes Challah and makes the appropriate blessings on the dough, she is bringing additional blessing into her home and into the food that she lovingly prepares for family & friends. It is a time for women to pray for their personal needs, the needs of their families and their communities.
By bringing a large group of women together to bake Challah, in addition to learning a wonderful skill & inspiring unity in our community, our hope is that our joint prayers will be so much more poignant.
This experience will be unforgettable, and we invite you to be a part of it!
