Rosh Chodesh Elul 5774
August 27, 2014 7:30 PM
East Bay, CA

Doula Devorah Leah Romano 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! Rebbetzin Romano will share the secrets of challah baking as elucidated in the kabbalistic book for women “Ohel Rochel.”

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!)

Please RSVP to receive location information.

This event is taking place in anticipation of Rosh Chodesh Elul! Suggested donation: $10.
