I Braided With The Challah Prince!

I feel incredibly fortunate to have welcomed Idan Chabasov, also known as the Challah Prince, to TBE in early March, for an unforgettable evening of fun and challah braiding. Over 160 people attended our sold-out event! Originally from Tel Aviv, Idan’s background is in professional dancing, video production, meditation and art. His passion now allows him to travel the world where he shares his love of art. Idan is a celebrated challah baker and social media sensation with more than 400K followers on Instagram (you can follow him @ChallahPrince)! Currently he is on a 2-month tour of North America, demonstrating the beauty that can be found in creating amazing challah masterpieces, one braid at a time. Those who attended our event braided their wonderful dough into fabulous challahs and discovered the joy that can be found in making challah!

The success of this event would not have been possible without the dedicated efforts by many. I want to thank Lauren Chizner, my co-organizer, as well as Rabbi Jeff and Carol Clopper, Rabbi Todd Chizner and Lauren, who helped make all the challah dough. Thanks to the Partnership Committee and volunteers for their assistance with the setup.  Also, I want to thank Lisa Bennett, our Temple Secretary, who created the fabulous programs and materials for everyone, and Irma Talbot, our Bookkeeper. Additionally, I want to thank Jason Gillet and his exceptional tech team, Jaycee and Alex, who helped to make the evening fun and interactive. I am grateful for a fabulous custodial staff, and supportive temple leadership. Lastly, a big thank you goes out to the Mina and Irving Klein Fund, for without their support this event would not have been possible.
