Six hundred Jewish women from throughout the area were tasked with mixing, kneading and making blessings at the recent Mega Challah Bake at Lucien’s Manor in Berlin. Spearheaded by Chabad-Lubavitch of Camden & Burlington Counties, participants learned how to mix, knead and shape their own traditional challah. In the spirit of Jewish unity and togetherness, guests were encouraged to share one of two loaves with a friend. “I feel very connected to my Jewish roots,” said Edith Bloom from Cinnaminson. “I hope to come with my granddaughters next year.” The historic event carried added significance as Jewish communities worldwide celebrate the year of Hakhel, a once-every-seven-year opportunity to celebrate Jewish unity and learning.
