More than 20 families and 60 adults and children came to the synagogue on Sunday, February 21 to learn how to make Challah in a fantastic and fun event presented by the Gan Yeladim at Ezra Habonim, the Niles Jewish Township Jewish Congregation (EHNTJC).
Amy Claver provided her favorite recipe last week, and above you can learn how to braid a six strand challah. Here's another approach, if the one above is tricky. In fact, if you search "How to braid challah" on YouTube, you'll end up with a variety of approaches and styles. (Thanks, Miriam, for sharing this idea!)
With the Megillah reading and Purim Shpiel tonight, and the Purim Carnival tomorrow, probably a good idea to talk about making Hamentaschen too!
