NOW: Over 350 women attend Milwaukee’s 2nd annual challah bake

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- People had the chance to take part in Milwaukee's 2nd annual challah bake for women and girls on Tuesday evening.

Challah is a traditional Jewish dough. The event led women step-by-step on how to make the dough as a group. People we spoke with say the role of women in making the dough is symbolic.

"Specifically a woman's involvement in the challah is what makes it very special, which is why we have this event for women by women. It's something that is central to the Jewish faith and central to our identity as Jews," said Mushka Lein, the event coordinator.

More than 350 women were in attendance.
