TESTIMONIALS

{The Challah Workshop}

Rochie Pinson, is an eloquent, dynamic speaker,  and truly inspired

as well as entertained, the Chabad Women's Circle of
the West Side of Manhattan participants.

She spoke of the circumstances that led her to become a professional challah baker and cookbook author, and then segued into a deep explanation of the Mitzvah of baking challah.

The women watched with excitement as they absorbed the techniques shown by Rochie, demonstrating how to prepare the perfect challah dough.

Rochie fine-tuned the process into something manageable and doable even for the skeptical beginner and non-baker. The icing on the cake was when the women filled and braided 3 magnificent doughs - kalamata olive/rosemary, lemon/poppy plus the fool-proof classic challah dough into wreaths, rosettes and even a hamantash!

The excitement and camaraderie in the room, led with such joy by Rochie, was felt throughout the event.

I highly recommend Rochie Pinson to lead a challah event for your organization, shul, or for a group of any size!

When it comes to challah there is no one quite like Rochie Pinson!
Her extensive knowledge and engaging manner make her very
popular with our attendees.
She draws a crowd who all come to learn from Rochie's experience with baking challah in all corners of the world.
She answers their questions enthusiastically and shares her methods with anyone seeking advice. Rochie's book, RISING, is a treasure trove of Jewish lore and practical tips for turning out delicious challah.
We look forward to having her join us again in the future!

"Having Rochie run our Challah Bake was the best decision I made!

She was easy to work with and understanding of our unique shlichus for frum single women. She was able to cater the information in a way that was insightful even for women who had heard this a million times.

She was great at keeping the crowd engaged and entertained through the different stages of the Challah Bake. I would strongly recommend using Rochie for your women's events!"

"Rochie can really hold a crowd!
Our community was thrilled with the twist she added to our annual challah bake and they loved her enthusiasm on the topic of challah.
She was a well of insight, engaging and inspiring the women with her passion and excitement. Rochie went though the basics of challah baking while layering on interesting concepts and ideas to spice up the evening. If you are looking for someone to pull together a room of people, for an inspirational and dynamic presentation of the process of challah, and for an organized and meaningful experience for shlucha and community alike,

I'd suggest Rochie all the way!!"

Rebbetzin Rochie came to  Beth Israel Chabad  of Norwalk/  Westport, CT for our Mega Challah Bake.   Her presentation of both interesting and insightful thoughts were coupled with personal vignettes which livened up the evening. Rochie’s braiding techniques were the highlight of the night. Every attendee left feeling inspired, uplifted and joyful.

Beautifully crafted, the illustrations are works of art and the detailed explanations are clear and easy to follow.

The book will turn you into a perfect challah baker.

It will also transform your life because each description of ingredients, utensils, and preparation raises one’s understanding of our own purpose in life, and of our interconnectedness with self, others, and our Creator.
Like the Rebbetzin, and baker, that she is Rochie Pinson provides recipes for challah as well as recipes for a life well-lived.


Buy it for the artwork. Buy it for the recipes. Above all, buy it for the inspirational teachings.

“The most spiritually elevating book about challah I've ever seen.......

buy it, you'll love it!"

MALKA FORSHNER / NAPLES, FL  / NOV 2015

This cookbook is not only a cookbook. It’s truly a work of art. You can see the author really put her whole heart and soul into this book. There is so much she teaches and shares about nurturing life which in turn is expressed by the intentions in baking challah. As well she has so many different types of challah, with different types of flours and sourdough... And then teaches you how to shapes it in so many different and beautiful designs.

The photography is so artistic and by each challah there’s a note of which page to turn to in order to learn how to braid it in that shape. She thought of every detail from cover to cover. There’s even a bookmark so you can save that special recipe or keep your place where you were reading. And then of course she’s teaches you the Halacha behind everything. Truly a work of art and lifetime of learning. It’s really a beautiful book.
