Challah Baking

I'm setting up a special challah baking for a friend of mine. It is a segulah for 40 women to all bake challah on the same day (generally a Friday) and to keep a person (or persons) in mind. The segulah could be to find a shidduch, to fully recover from an illness, to have children, or really any outcome you desire. In this case, my friend has been married for almost 7 years and does not have children yet. A group of women did this for me back last April, and now I'm due in April, so I hope that this will have the same effect for her!

For any Jewish women out there who read my blog and bake challah, if you can bake any time from Thursday night until Shabbos, please let me know so I can give you their Hebrew names (and instructions, if you need them). Thanks!

That is a great tradition and even better if it works like it did for you. Good Luck!
