Beseder Gallery

Date: 23. 4. 2023 - 15:00

A workshop for adults and children on how to bake the Jewish holiday challah, led by Petra Ernyei.

Challah, also called barches, is a special bread baked by Ashkenazi and some Sephardic Jews for holiday celebrations.
According to Jewish traditions, the Shabbat and holiday meals begin with a blessing over two loaves of bread (ha-motzi). These "two loaves" are a reminder of how manna fell from heaven to the Jews traveling during the exodus from Egypt. Manna did not fall during Shabbat and holidays, but instead a double portion fell on the day before Shabbat and holidays. Come enjoy with us or learn how barches are baked.

Entrance fee: 190 CZK
