500 Jewish Mothers From Around the World Bake Challahs in Jerusalem for Israeli Soldiers Featured

JERUSALEM,  Some 500 Jewish mothers from around the world bonded over baking challahs for Israeli soldiers Thursday in Jerusalem in “The Great Big Challah Bake,” an event run by Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP) as part of the global Shabbat Project.

The women – 400 of whom are visiting Israel Nov. 6-16 on a JWRP “Momentum” trip together with past participants whom come from Israel – baked over 1,000 challahs for two hours, then packaged the loaves to donate to Israeli soldiers. The visitors, from Canada, the U.S., Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine, are touring Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Galilee and other popular destinations as part of the Momentum trip, which features extensive itineraries and curated curricula encompassing everything from Jewish values to contemporary Israeli society.

The Momentum trips, sponsored by Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs and JWRP, are designed to inspire Jewish mothers to connect deeply with their Jewish heritage and transform themselves, their families – and ultimately their communities and the wider world. More than 10,000 Jewish mothers from 26 countries around the world have already participated in the Momentum trips.

The Great Big Challah Bake was also conducted in partnership with the Shabbat Project, a global grassroots movement that unites Jews of all denominations and backgrounds to celebrate the transformative power of Shabbat. The Shabbat Project 2016 takes place this weekend, Nov. 11-12. Last year The Shabbat Project took place in more than 900 cities in nearly 90 countries.
