Slice of Heaven Breads at Temple Sinai is on break for a few weeks.

We are excited to offer online challah baking class this Friday morning, we will use 'Zoom' video conferencing, you can join from your computer or using a smartphone or tablet, look for their App.  

If you would like to join this Friday's sessions, please reply to this email and we will send you the Zoom link.  In addition, If you do not have yeast on hand and cannot locate it at a local grocery store, e-mail us by 8am on Thursday and we will arrange a contactless pickup of some for you.  

  1. A mixing session at 10:00 am and, after the dough rises...
  2. Braiding session at 11:30 am 
A few notes about what to expect to help this run smoothly:
  • Please have all ingredients out on the counter before class time, and pre-measured
  • In a large bowl, mix the sugar into the warm water, then sprinkle the yeast into the water and give a gentle stir. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and beat. Then login to the class.
  • The rabbi will start by talking about the challah making process 
  • Ingredients will then be mixed and eventually turn into dough! 
  • We will then take a break and, let our dough balls rise in our own homes from about 10:30 to 11:30 am
  • At 11:30 AM join us to learn how to braid the challah
  • Then let the dough rise again before baking it in your own oven at 350F.  

We hope you can join us for this fun at-home event!
