Virtual Self-Care Challah Making Class

 In Events, Mental Health, Self-Care, Shabbat

What if you could bake bread once a week, every week? What if the smell of fresh baking bread could turn your house into a home? And what if the act of making the bread―mixing and kneading, watching and waiting―could heal your heartache and your emptiness, your sense of being overwhelmed? It can.

Join speaker and four-time award-winning author of Braided: A Journey of a Thousand Challahs, Beth Ricanati, MD, for a live virtual self-care Challah making community gathering in partnership with the Blue Dove Foundation and Tradition Kitchens.

Friday, March 27
1:00 pm EST / 10:00am PST

Beth will demo her Challah recipe while sharing how this thousands-year-old ritual connects to our everyday self-care and mental health.

You are welcome to listen in or join us for hands-on Challah making in your own kitchen.
