Reflect on the holy season while baking a loaf of Challah for your family to enjoy on Easter morning. In Jewish faith, this traditional bread is symbolic of the gifts the Lord provides from the earth. According to custom, two loaves are prepared to represent the double portion of manna that would fall from the heavens on the day before a holiday or the Sabbath. You will leave with the Challah, the recipe and a basket of reflections. Limit: 10 people.
