The Rohr Chabad Center will host a Mega Challah Bake on Wednesday, November 8, at 7:30 pm, in the Mandela Room at Binghamton University. The fee is $5 for community members with reservations made in advance. Participants will have an opportunity to taste eight flavors of challah and each participant will receive a gift to take home, as well as two challahs. Reservations can be made here. The event is co-sponsored by local community organizations, including Beth David Sisterhood, Chabad Women’s League and Temple Israel.
“Join hundreds of communities across the nation and around the world as Chabad – in co-sponsorship with local community organizations – hosts a Mega Challah Bake during which hundreds of students and community members will join in mixing, kneading and shaping challahs, one of which they will keep and one of which will be given away by participants to someone who would appreciate the gift,” said organizers of the event.
“The Mega Challah Bakes, held in cities small and large, bring the community together in a fun and easy celebration of Jewish heritage,” explained Goldie Ohana, coordinator. “In our case, we will be uniting our campus and local communities through campus and local Jewish organizations co-sponsoring, and lots and lots of people coming out to enjoy this activity together.”
