RANDOLPH, NJ- On Thursday November 21 many Jewish women will join together at the Senior Citizen Center in Randolph to celebrate a night dedicated to the Jewish woman and the role she plays in our future. The evening will be commemorated by each participant making their own handmade challah, mixing, kneading and shape their own traditional challah. There will be many surprises throughout the evening along with performances, raffles and more.
The purpose of the evening is to foster community, unity and sisterhood between all segments of the Jewish community. 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. Making and baking challah is something Jewish mothers have been doing ever since Judaism was a thing, the Bible even mentions Sara as having made her own challah. To be able to make our own challah with many other Jewish women will display the unity in this community. We invite all women from all walks of life to celebrate their womanhood.
An Event for Women 13+. The event is open to the public. Refreshments including Challah will be served.
