Challah for Hunger Alumni Network

Challah for Hunger (CfH) brings people together to bake and sell challah to raise funds and awareness for social justice causes. 2014 marks our 10th anniversary of creating transformational experiences for young Jews through social justice work and challah baking.    To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we want to re-connect with our thousands of alumni by developing a Challah for Hunger Alumni Network. We want to create online and in person opportunities for CfH alumni to continue to engage with social justice work, Jewish community and philanthropy.  For many participants, CfH is an entry point to Jewish social justice work, and we want to support the continuation of their journey.
