1,000 women from across Montreal gathered Thursday for a Mega Challah baking event.
The event was organized by the 34 shluchos from Montreal, which joined women from across the spectrum of Jewish communities.
The program opened with Tehillim and a video of the Rebbe about the Jewish woman.
Mrs. Schanowitz of Chabad of Westmount explained all the ingredients while demonstrating how to make the dough.
Cindy Becker, a member of Chabad TMR recounted to participants how baking Challah in her son’s merit helped with his health. She now visits children in the hospital each Friday and distributes Challah to patients.
This was followed by a musical interlude by Chana Serraf, Bashie Naparstek and Malki Shuchat.
Sara Raskin spoke about Challah and made a bracha on separating the dough. Dina Krasnianski demonstrated the shaping of the Challah.
The program ended with a roll call of each location participating in the event, followed by music and dancing.
Each participant went home with a bag, apron and two loaves of Challah to bake.
