A great big Winnipeg Challah Bake!

Friday, 9 November, 2018 - 1:20 am

Last week over 350 diverse Jewish women came together for an evening of INSPIRATION, CONNECTION and GIVING. The sold-out event was held at the Hotel Fort Garry and was sponsored by Chabad-Lubavitch of Winnipeg. Featuring guest host Soochie of “In the most delightful way”, participants learned how to mix, knead and shape their own traditional challah.

We worked hard to create an evening that would bring the deep tradition and culture of our heritage into today's every day woman. Dedicated to the victims of the Pittsburgh massacre, we focused on the power of light against darkness by incorporating a glow-in-the-dark theme and encouraged all the women to pass on the light through little acts of kindness. The final touch was providing the women with a beautiful gift box to pass on a challah or LOAVES of LOVE to someone else in need.

Challah in its more widely-known usage refers to a braided bread traditionally eaten at Shabbat and other holidays, and is considered one of the most famous Jewish foods. But in its more basic, biblical meaning, challah is the piece of dough that is traditionally separated and consecrated to G-d while baking bread, a custom that has been performed by Jewish women for more than 100 generations.

Over the past few days we have received countless messages of gratitude and Facebook is flooded with positive reflections of the evening. On behalf of the entire Shabbat Project Committee and the team at Chabad, we want to thank our sponsors, partners and guest who made the Mega Challah Bake such a tremendous success!
