Join us for the Mega Challah Bake 250! Unite with Jewish women from throughout the community and participate in a fun filled inspirational evening. Discover the ancient art of Challah making. Enjoy the Challah Wars, with renowned Challah masters from across our community competing for the Challah Queen title. Enjoy delicious dinner, wine and an evening of camaraderie. 


You KNEAD to be there!

Ingredients and utensils will be provided for making challah dough that evening.  All attendees will receive a complimentary apron to take home as well as the two beautifully shaped challahs they crafted to bake in their own ovens. 

In 2017 and 2019 registration reached capacity a week prior to the event so don't delay purchasing your tickets!
