On Wednesday 27th October, Whitefield Chabad in Manchester hosted 40 ladies both in person and on Zoom for a Pink Challah Bake to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month coming to an end. The evening raised just over £400 and was led by Sara Jaffe of Chabad. The group learnt how to make the challah dough, kneading techniques and the intricate art of braiding.
While the dough was proving, the ladies heard testimonies from two long time loyal supporters of Chai, Francine Goldman and Michal Mocton who spoke about their own cancer journeys and how Chai was able to support them. The two also stressed the importance of checking yourself regularly and attending your routine mammogram.
Sheila Morris who attended the Challah Bake said: “fantastic evening. So informative. Special thanks to Francine and Michal.”
Following the event, Chai’s Jilly Berens said: “Pink Challah Bake was such a lovely way to get women together baking and learning about the importance of women’s health. There really was an amazing atmosphere in the room and it was a lovely evening and the perfect way to enjoy yourself after a day’s work! Thank you to Francine and Michal for sharing their deeply personal stories and to Sara Jaffe for hosting this wonderful evening.”
