2nd annual Mega Challah Bake planned for Nov. 10

How is this for a list of ingredients? – 600 pounds of flour, 400 eggs and 1,000,000 sesame seeds.

Add in mixing bowls, spoons, aprons and more than 100 women and girls and you get a Mega Challah Bake.

This year’s event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Club at Treasure Island, 400 Treasure Island Causeway.

Women of all ages, including girls 12 and up with adult supervision, can register to make their own challah dough and take two loaves of challah to bake at home. With table captains assisting the challah making process, whether the participants bake challah regularly or not, a stress-free, hands-on baking experience is guaranteed – with plenty of time for schmoozing and a chance to learn more about the origins of challah.

The Chabad Jewish Center of St. Petersburg, Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties, Hadassah, St. Pete Wealth Management group at Raymond James - Marcia Person, and the Club at Treasure Island have joined hands to sponsor the Challah Bake.

More than 100 women and girls attended last year’s inaugural Mega Challah Bake and an even larger turn out is expected this year. Participants will experience the power of numbers as they mix, knead and braid the challah dough together.

Committee members for the challah bake include: Kory Blair, Alice Ettinger, Gail Frye, Ettie Goldberg, Elana Gootson, Ilana Hecht, Susan Kagan, Maxine Kaufman, Debbie Kobernick, Stephanie Kohan, Chaya Korf, Pamela Lecompte, Ruth Ann Mizrahi, Ahava Van Camp and Linda Weiss.

Early bird registration is $15; after Oct. 27 the price rises to $20. Sponsorships are also available, see the website for details.

Participants are encouraged to bring friends and family. Reservations are required. For more information or to RSVP, call Chaya Korf at (727) 344-4900 or visit
