Challah for Hunger brings people together to bake and sell challah to raise money and awareness for social justice.
We make a difference in the world by investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs, social activists, and philanthropists.
Are you a Challah for Hunger alum living in Philadelphia? If the answer is yes and you want to get back involved with CfH, we have just the event for you! On July 12th the Challah for Hunger Philadelphia Alumni and Friends Chapter will host their third challah-bake at Broad Street Ministry (Broad and Pine). There are two shifts: 11-12:30 Dough Making or 3-5pm Brading and Baking. Click here to sign up and to purchase challah.
Profits from challah sales will benefit the Broad Street Hospitality Collaborative. The BSHC focuses on alleviating the pains of hunger and homelessness in Philadelphia. In 2014, they served over 1,000 meals per week and are expected to serve more than 80,000 meals in 2015. Additionally, BSHC expands meal and hospitality services in the summer months because of the heat.
Grab a friend, an apron and a chef hat and join us Sunday, July 12th to make a difference, deliciously.

Gesher Festival of Jewish Life is a program of JDCRegions. Hosted in Bulgaria, Gesher is a 4 day festival of Jewish learning and professional development, through various activities, lectures, discussions & workshops, which reinforce the diversity of each person’s Jewish identity.
This May, alumnae Amanda Winer and Sarah Glickstein represented Challah for Hunger at the festival. We asked Amanda and Sarah to share some photos and reflect on their experiences. Click here to see hear what Gesher was all about!
Thanks to alumna Kate Belza and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation for providing this opportunity!
