Challah Baking Bar

Here is a wonderful activity for your next ladies/young ladies function.

I especially like the idea of challah baking for a Bat Mitzvah Party Activity. It gives the Bat Mitzvah Girl the opportunity to do the mitzvah of Hafrashat Challah for the very first time in the presence of  close family and friends.

To "top" it off, everyone can braid and spice their own challah, choosing from an assortment of seeds and spices.

Teaching  a new way to braid the challah can be an exciting part of the activity.

You can send home freshly baked challah in a nicely wrapped box.

This idea was originally featured in an article I wrote for Mishpacha Magazine. My friends  at  BP  Print Group created a beautiful challah cover to use to cover the challah as it rises. Each guest can go home with this momento, which is both useful and practical, as the bracha of Hafrashat Challah and the Yhi Ratzon are conveniently printed on it . 

Tip-If you don’t have time to make the dough before the party, ask a friend to help you or you can purchase challah dough at a bakery.
