Challah Afternoon - Class is Full

A Beth Am Women Event

Come join Beth Am Women as we learn how to bake challah together from chef and author Lisa Rauchwerger!

Participants will learn the basics of making the dough, then will enjoy a brown bag lunch with new friends while it is rising. We will learn different techniques for braiding and basting, making round vs. oblong challot, and the secret for fulfilling the mitzvah of "taking challah." Everyone will leave with their own freshly baked challah (chocolate chip, seeded or plain) to enjoy or freeze for a future Shabbat, and a recipe. 

Lisa Rauchwerger is the author of the bestselling interactive cookbook, Chocolate Chip Challah and Other Twists on the Jewish Holiday Table. Books will be available for purchase.  

Please bring a bag lunch and an apronNo experience necessary. There will be a $15 fee.

Note: this class is full and cannot accept additional RSVPs.
