Doula Devorah Leah Romano and Rebbetzin Miriam Ferris will guide us to make dough and “separate the challah” with the appropriate blessing according to Jewish law. We are Jewish women raising Jewish families, and practicing how it’s done! Participants will be asked to bring their own ingredients and extra-large bowls.
Of course, we’ll do some Jewish learning too! Mrs. Ferris will share the secrets of challah baking as elucidated in the kabbalistic book for women “Ohel Rochel.” The method we will use for making the dough is a type of mystical challah baking according to Kabbalah. It is beautiful, and makes so much sense to know a Jewish way of baking.
Please bring your own ingredients:
3/4 cups sugar or honey
3/4 cups oil
1 1/2 tbsp salt
4 1/2 tbsp yeast
3 1/2 cups water (or half eggs,half water)
5 pounds flour
clean dish towel
measuring cup and measuring spoons
large mixing bowl (Ikea sells a sturdy inexpensive one!)
