Challah Day
We're grateful to report that this year's Challah Day has sold out!  But if you would like to be put on the waiting list, please contact Susan Schwartz at nomad6@ptd.net or 570-441-2774. If anyone cancels, we'll call you, and if nobody cancels, we'll call you for next year's class before we publicly advertise.


Members of Beth Israel Congregation are opening their doors to their neighbors, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, to teach them how to make challah, the delicious braided bread that is one of the highlights of Shabbat and the High Holidays.

We're adding a new optional twist this year  how to make chocolate challah, an invention by one of our members!

This fund-raiser will help the tiny, 92-year-old synagogue  the only one left in Columbia and Montour counties  keep its eternal light burning.

Participants will also learn about the symbolic meaning of the bread and its role in the Jewish story.

Afterward, we'll enjoy a homemade meal of traditional Jewish foods, including matzoh ball soup, salad, apple cake, and of course, fresh-baked challah with honey.

Participants will each get to take home the loaf they make.

Each class is limited to 12 students.

Tickets are non-refundable unless a replacement participant is available.

If the roads are dangerous, we'll move the event to Feb. 16.

Can't afford the fee? Contact Treasurer Susan Schwartz at 570-441-2774. We will be offering some scholarships. You can also call if you want to participate but don't feel comfortable paying for tickets online.

Can't attend but would like to support us or the scholarship fund?  Please send donations to Congregation Beth Israel, c.o. Susan Schwartz, 226 E. Fifth St., Bloomsburg PA 17815.  Unused scholarship money will go to the synagogue's general fund.
