A Lesson with Challa
Congratulations to the students involved in this Royal Vale fundraising initiative. Eliane (Grade 4), Jonathan (Grade 2) and Nathaniel (Grade 1) and younger sister Talia Goldstein, with friends Marshall and Anderson Weinstein, baked challahs the weekend before the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) weekend challas before the Jewish new Year (Rosh Ha'Shanna). “Teaching our kids the values of charity and helping others, we asked them what could we do and where will we donate the money and they decided before we started that it will be like a lemonade stand only we will bake instead,” said Liat Lev Ary, mom of Eliane, Jonathan, Nathaniel and Talia. "They wanted to donate the proceeds of the sale to the Children’s Hospital. The sale was virtual, done on Facebook, since it was raining. We started at 5 p.m. on a Sunday and by 8 p.m on Sunday we had to ‘close’ the sale as we baked 12 kg of flour and sold 75 loaves of the challas. The kids raised $435 by selling the challas and an anonymous donor doubled it so they ended up donating $835 which was presented to the hospital by the children."
