1. L’Dough V’Dough - My after-school club bringing teens and Holocaust survivors together to bake challah bread and share stories

    I named this club “L’Dough V’Dough,” playing on the Hebrew idiom “L’Dor V’Dor” meaning “from generation to generation.”

    Participants have expressed to me that making challah adds a creative and hands-on aspect to the experience.

    Braiding the strands of challah, like arms intertwining, adds to the survivors’ message of continuity.
