Calling all Challah Bakers!!

I am looking for at least 40 challah bakers* this Thursday to bake challah and daven for my very dear friend Leah Miriam Bat Shoshana – her kidney transplant surgery is scheduled for this Thursday – we may not be surgeons or nurses, but thru prayer and the mitzvah of challah we can truly help. Sign up below. Tizku leMitzvot!

* there is a tradition that if you have a chain of 40 women baking challah all davening for the same purpose, then that prayer has higher merit. If anyone knows the sources please feel free to share them with us.

    A rabbi I spoke to about this said he knows of no specific sourcebout 40 women baking challah the same time making a bracha, etc. But that is has become a popular thing in recent years. That being said, he also said even if there’s no actual soutce, there can only be bracha from many women fulfilling the mitzvah of hafrashas challah together in the merit of another!
