Baking Chavurah: A Chavurah for Kol Shofar members to engage with one another in discussions while baking cookies and cakes for upcoming Shabbatot
The vision is that like-minded folks will get a chance to do a mitzvah for our community by preparing desserts for future kiddushes while enjoying one another’s company and engaging one another in impromptu discussions. My experience in the kitchen is such that I can easily envision elevating one another, while we do the mitzvah of helping to feed our extended Kol Shofar family. (Baking and freezing works wonderfully well).
I am always open to hearing from Kol Shofar’s membership to poll the thoughts and desires of others. This group is open-ended, always welcoming new participants, having each session’s attendance limited only by the kitchen space. If you are interested and have preliminary input, please contact Barbara Schwartz through the directory or by calling the office.
We have already baked desserts for a kiddush of over 300 attendees! We baked hamentashen for our wonderful Purim Fest, which were all sold: profits went back to Kol Shofar, of course! We are not afraid to try new and different (and, sometimes complicated) recipes like rugelach, but we also bake multiple selections at each monthly session.
There are baking ‘slots’ for people of all skills so jump right in and join the indescribable experience of our version of “kitchen davening”…….have you ever thought you could have a religious experience with a kitchen mixer and measuring spoons? No? Come by sometime when we are in session.
Contact the front office for our monthly schedule. We usually meet on a Thursday.
No one organizes like our Barbara Schwartz. Today was such an incredible experience for all who participated. We not only baked, but shared family stories and recalled loved ones, whose recipes we still treasure and use. To be a part of such a diverse group of women with a common goal was really awesome. Thank you all for being “our community”. This is really what Kol Shofar is all about. ~Tessa
