Challah for (C)hunger

Elisa Waugh ’13 ain’t no challah back girl:

Come buy delicious challah (regular and chocolate chip) baked by your weekly Shabbat challah bakers and friends! Proceeds will go to helping continuing relief in Darfur and Pakistan!

(Challah is a sweet Jewish egg bread typically made for the weekly holiday of Shabbat. It makes amazing french toast, is great toasted, with sandwiches, with everything!)

  • Time: 7:30 – 10:30 PM

Note: I went to Hebrew School for six years and never heard of chocolate chip challah before, so I’m thinking Elisa may be on to something.
