On July 28th from 1:30 - 3:00 PM at the Cohen Center, CHAI Seniors will be holding a Challah Bake - an important Jewish Tradition. Joined by Sharon Matten, baking extraordinaire, chef and cookbook author, you can learn how to braid challah in a way that you've never braided before!

She is the author of Shabbos Under Pressure – Cooking with Pressure = Pressure Free Cooking, a fun, informative, creative, useful, essential cookbook about cooking traditional Jewish recipes using an Electric Pressure Cooker (EPC) like the Instant Pot. She has also been featured in news publications like  Mid Atlantic Media, Chicago Tribune Syndication and Aish.com.  You can find out more about Sharon at https://koshereveryday.com/.
