Challah Bake set for October 25

The Jewish Federation of Louisville will hold its annual Challah Bake, a new tradition here, Wednesday, October 25, at 7 p.m. at the Standard Club.
The Challah Bake is part of the Shabbat Project, an international program celebrated one weekend a year around the world to encourage the observance of Shabbat.
This is the second year Louisville has done the Shabbat Project.
Karen Bass and Julie Strull, the event co-chairs, offered their own takes on why the challah baking has value.
Strull said the event brings women together to socialize, and bake.
“This is going to be an amazing opportunity for the women of Jewish Louisville to get a taste of Shabbat,” said Strull. “Baking is always better with a partner.”
Bass appreciates the chance to connect with other Jewish women.
“When I was asked to chair this event, I was thrilled to be able to share one of my most inspirational experiences during my time in Israel,” she said. “As a ‘non-baking’ woman, I never fathomed that the Challah Bake would turn out to be one of my favorite events on the JWRP trip.”
The charge is $15 per person, which includes an apron and all the ingredients to make challah. Click here to register.
