Join us virtually with author Beth Ricanati, MD, as she leads us through her challah recipe and a discussion about wellness and taking time for ourselves. Discover why Beth learned “that simply stopping and baking bread was the best medicine she could prescribe for women in a fast-paced world.”

Learn more about Beth Ricanati and check out her book Braided: A Journey of A Thousand Challahs, which is available now.


We will be on Zoom this year with baking kits available. The $18 fee is per household and includes the zoom link, dry ingredients for one recipe of challah, a booklet of Shabbat recipes, grape juice, and Shabbat candles. Kit pickup will be the week of October 25th. An email will be sent for you to select a time to come pick up your kit. 

Register by October 18th to receive a baking kit. Registration closes on October 25th.
