As part of our new “Beyond the College Campus” initiative, our staff has been teaching challah braiding.
Some of our partners include JFCS, an organization that empowers individuals and families toward self-sufficiency, JCHAI, an organization that offers support to those with developmental disabilities, local pre-schools and most recently, jkidphilly an organization that connects families to happenings, resources and voices of the Jewish community.
On February 28, we partnered with jkidphilly at BZBI and KleinLife JCC for two challah-making programs. The programs were engaging, interactive and all around fun. Children and their parents learned how to braid challah, colored Shabbat books, and finished with an activity on food insecurity. Each child left with their own individual challah to bake at home!
