Chabad to host Mega Challah Bake

More than 180 women will gather on the grounds of Camp Gan Israel at 270 Lake Avenue on Monday, July 14 at 6:30 p.m. to participate in a “Mega Challah Bake.”

Challah comes from the Hebrew word challah and refers to the two loaves of bread that form the core of the Shabbat meal. In its more biblical meaning, challah is the piece of dough that is traditionally separated and consecrated to God every time we bake bread.

Replete with spiritual meaning, challah baking is one of the three primary mitzvot of Jewish women. For more than a hundred generations, Jewish women have fulfilled this beautiful and life-transforming mitzvah.

Women across Fairfield County are invited to join the hundreds of women at Camp Gan Israel of Greenwich participating in the beautiful tradition of baking challah under the summer stars.

This enchanted summer evening will include cocktails, light fare and a raffle for amazing prizes from generous Greenwich store owners. To register or for more information, visit or call 203-629-9059.
