Jewish Baking for Beginners

Learning Kitchen


£6 full, £5 concession & £4 children (or £4.50 each for families of 4+)

Roll up your sleeves and join in our seasonal Challah baking workshop as part of our Sunday activities programme!

Join us for baking Challah bread – a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish bread that is braided and traditionally eaten on ceremonial occasions such as Shabbat.

Our baking workshops are open to children and adults alike to try out baking traditional Jewish recipes. Discover the history behind Challah baking as you get hands-on in our brand new learning kitchen. Bring a friend or your family and enjoy baking together.

No experience necessary – perfect for baking beginners. You even get to take home what you bake! (or you can buy your own treats from our café).
