Challah bake 2015

All set for Shabbat Project 2016

THE Shabbat Project will be back next month with new and improved offerings designed to engage the Melbourne Jewish community in a global celebration of Shabbat.

Launched in South Africa in 2013, the initiative aims to unite Jews from all walks of life in experiencing one Shabbat together. More than a million people worldwide are set to participate in events on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12, with this being the third year Australia has taken part.

“We’ve changed a lot of the focus. We’re doing quite a few new things,” director Rabbi Moshe Kahn told The AJN.

He explained that a key fixture of the Shabbat Project, the Challah Bake, has been divided into three events: a kids’ challah bake, a women’s challah bake, and for the first time, a teen challah bake.
