Breaking bread together
Mindful of getting to know their neighbours, members of the Jewish community have always sought to build friendly relations with the rest of the population, for example by inviting them to share in their community activities.
For a number of years now, in the summer months, everyone has been invited to come and learn how to make challah, a traditional Jewish bread. A tour of the synagogue is also offered.
Challah is a traditional egg-based bread eaten on the Sabbath, but also on celebratory and other special occasions.
