WIZO Switzerland: Challa Baking in Fribourg

Part of the worldwide "Shabbat Project", the women bonded with each other and their Jewish sisters around the globe while baking deicious challas

October 19, 2018

Over half a dozen women gathered in Fribourg for the annual "Challa Bake" as part of the worldwide "Shabbat Project".

The idea behind the Shabbat Project, which started five years ago in South Africa, is simple: Jews from all walks of life, from across the spectrum of religious affiliation, young and old, from all corners of the world – come together to experience the magic of one full Shabbat kept together. The Shabbat Project transcends barriers that divide and unites Jews across the globe.

"What better way to spend an afternoon among WIZO ladies than making Challot together while strengthening bonds between each other and with our faith and traditions," they said.
