My Sister’s Challah

Writer and challah-maker extraordinaire, Elizabeth Applebaum is Marketing Director at the Jewish Community Center. When not attending to the news and events at the JCC, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with her four children, reading at leisure and playing a curiously competitive game of Words with friends.
