Mega Challah Bake – 
Thursday Sept. 18

Join Jewish women from the Greater Jacksonville area for an evening of unity and inspiration as we shape delicious Challah. 
A tribute to Esther Ohayon’s first Yartzeit

Be one of the many Women from the Greater Jacksonville Area to bake challah together as a community in a sublime moment of Jewish pride & unity.

This evening is in Tribute to Esther Ohayon’s first Yartzeit.

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. Join Jewish women from across the many cross sections of our community for the ultimate Challah extravaganza. We will knead, braid, shape and bake together.

Baking challah is a time-honored Mitzvah dating bake 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, their communities etc.

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, as women from across the Jacksonville Jewish Community come together for this MEGA mitzvah opportunity.
