This challah-studded article depicts the highs and lows of building a kosher bakery from the ground up. Zak, who grew up in a secular, suburban household, was suddenly drawn at the age of 22, to farming, building, baking, and eventually, Judaism.
He explains a little bit about his spiritual growth: “What really drew me to it is the tradition. I’m charmed by traditional craftsmanship in bread and cheese, so it makes sense, right?”
Cheese and challah…now that’s not a bad idea! Shabbat shalom!
