Making Challahs for the Holiday

Written by Editor on . Posted in Community News

On Aug. 22, volunteers assembled at Adas Israel Congregation in DC to bake challahs for community members who need a little extra support throughout the High Holidays (people in mourning, ill, home-bound, juggling life with a new baby, and so on). Leah Hadad and Healey Sutton demonstrated different techniques for making the round shape traditional at this time of year. It is customary to eat round challahs during this period as a symbol of our desire for a year in which life and blessings continue without end. The group baked 30 challahs total.
