This week a group of students at Arizona State University organized a Challah bake sale, inspired by the devotion of rebbetzin Chana Tiechtel, to support their local Chabad house, Chabad of ASU.
They sold nearly 60 loaves of Challah and Rye bread at the first weekly downtown Tempe farmer’s market.
Many female students at ASU got an opportunity to learn about the spiritual side of baking Challah as well as performing the mitzvah of separating Challah for the first time.
The kosher breads were handmade in the Rohr Chabad House kitchen under the supervision of Rabbi Shmuel Tiechtel and all proceeds were donated to the shul with the hopes of offsetting the costs of our weekly shabbos dinners.
We anticipate continuing to bake and sell challahs every week at the fair, spreading information about Judaism and the high holidays, as well as providing one of the only sources of kosher bread in Tempe, and definitely one of the tastiest!
