FED: The Challah Prince
Idan Chabasov, The Challah Prince, will join us to walk through the steps of making and braiding a beautiful and delicious challah while sharing his Jewish journey to challah, reminding us that it is more than a traditional food – it is also a therapeutic process that brings joy and intentionality to the moment.
Each participant will leave with a braided challah ready to bake.
This program is for all Challah bakers and lovers, ages 6th grade and up. Elementary-aged kids are welcome to join our kids’ programming and care, which will include challah braiding and decorating, pizza and a movie.
Idan Chabasov – Who is the Prince?
Born and raised in Tel Aviv and now he’s back in Israel after 7 years in Berlin, Germany, Idan Chabasov (35) has always been an artist. With a background in professional dancing, video production, animation, art, and PR in the lifestyle-industry, it is now Chabasov’s mission to bring art into the baking world, and to demonstrate the beauty of every single piece of Challah.
Chabasov has been baking this traditional Jewish bread for years for friends and family, and in the process discovered a world of beauty, spirituality, and personal-growth. But the hobby remained a hobby, until one evening in January 2020. After a breathing and meditation session, Chabasov spontaneously created the “Challah Prince”. There were no great intentions behind the “Challah Prince”, but rather an artistic outlet that allowed Idan to combine his drive for the creative process with his versatile identities.
What started as a small instagram account had soon become an ever-growing community of art, creativity, positivity, and deliciousness. Particularly during the trying-times of the Covid-19 pandemic, Chabasov has been dedicating himself to this community – sharing his creations and unique ways of braiding the dough, and personally communicating with every single one of his community members. As the “Challah Prince”, it is his role, afterall, to help, encourage and uplift, especially during difficult times.
As the community continues to grow, so do Chabasov’s endeavours. Drawing endless inspiration from his community members, Chabasov’s creations have been continuously evolving, adding new facets of creativity, imagination and skill. With new and exciting projects in the works, the Challah Prince is well on his way to spread this delicious masterpiece to every corner of the world.
