I have always been so inspired by the woman in the jewish comunity at how well and how easy they make it look to be such a role model to other woman, jewish or not. Always making sure to get woman to be part of a community and supporting one another is truly remarkable and i've always looked up to the women in my community who do such a great job at it. Now, having created my own family with my husband, it means much more to me than it ever did before. I see the amazing things that happen daily when woman join each other and spread their love and selflesssness with others. I didnt know the approach I wanted to take in order to become more involved in my community, so I had some wonderful advice from some great woman and recommended a challah bake in honor of a young man who needed help. Help from his community for support while he and his young family was struggling due to health reasons I will not disclose for personal reasons. A week after finalizing with a few woman that I will be hosting a challah bake at my home, it was beyond a successful night! 20 women came together and with everyone having a person in mind to pray for and give blessings for, it was not only a social event but such a meaningful one. Being able to personally bring together a handful of women from diverse backgrounds, communities, and religious groups to generate Jewish unity was my way of giving back to the community who taught me so much of what I know. It felt so refreshing for the soul to feel the importance of prayer. If there is anything I believe in, it is the strength of prayer. If you have ever wanted to give back, not knowing how but willing, I find that this is a great way to start! Even if you have no idea where to start or how to start, reach out to woman! You do not need to be an expert in challah baking, you just need the basics and that's it.
