JFamily Challah Train
Nov 2 – Nov 30 all-day

Choo Choo! All aboard the challah train!

Join the JFamily team in connecting neighbors together with challah. A JFamily team member will start the train by dropping off a challah and a train bag to the first conductors home before Shabbat. The next week you pay it forward as the conductor by bringing challah to another neighbor, and then they become the conductor to pass it forward to the next neighbor. Everything you need to know about what to do, including challah recipes and places to buy challah will be in the train bag.
