Meditate and Bake

Knead For Peace

“You are not an observer, you are a participant.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Our goal is to create Connection and spread Jewish culture, by baking Challah and sharing it.

  1. Mix the Ingredients – We all show up differently here, from rule followers to wild explorers. We all belong in the mix!
  2. Knead Meditation – When you knead the dough by hand, you physically strengthen your body and release stress from your mind, breathe deeply and allow peace to fill your soul.
  3. Rise Up – Give the dough room to breathe, allow it to rise like your potential.
  4. Bake the Challah – think of the people you will share your bread with, your thoughts and emotions infuse the flavor.
  5. Share – Doing this every week, you will quickly have too much Challah, especially when you start making 3 loaves! When you share your bread, listen and speak with your community, grow closer. Together we will create peace.

Create Peace


Like Peace, Making Challah is a Practice, it is something we get better at every time we clean our hands and press them into the cool flour. Liberate your soul and connect with your friends, family and neighbors, one Challah at a time!
