Emilie Socash, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties, center, and daughter, Hila, recite the blessing on the Challah dough as Rebittzen Chaya Korf of Chabad of Greater St. Petersburg, left, looks on. For the first time in south Pinellas County, more than 100 women gathered to make challah together.

The community Mega Challah bake, held at the Philip Benjamin Tower in St. Petersburg, was cosponsored by the Tower’s foundation, Chabad Jewish Center of Greater St. Petersburg, Hadassah and the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties, and its Young Adult Division of the Federation.

The event focused on camaraderie and learning.

Carefully measured-out amounts of flour, sugar, dry yeast, salt and oil and a clean apron were put next to each of the place settings at all tables. The participants joyfully stirred, kneaded and braided as they created their own challah. For some, it was the first time.

Each participant also received her own copy of the recipe, and took home their braided dough to bake at home.
