BREAKING

Bread

Thank you to all who came together for our first Breaking Bread program on January 18th, 2024! 
In honor of Martin Luther King’s vision of a community in which we can all “sit at the table of brotherhood,” we learned about the Jewish tradition of making challah, the bread used ceremonially during Shabbat. We discussed what “the taking of challah” represents, and why this centuries-old practice is performed in kitchens all over the world on Friday afternoons.

We spoke of the concept of Shabbat (Friday night to Saturday evening) as “separation,” and how our bread-making mirrors the experience
of braiding together ourselves with our community.
