Annual Global Shidduch Bake 2020 – 5780

This year, the Friday closest to Chamisha Asar B’av coincides with Friday, July 31/10 Av, Erev Shabbos Nachamu and marks the 6th year of CBI – Challah Bake International. This auspicious time is ideal for women to join not only in making challah, but also in giving tzedokah and davening for each other’s children of marriageable age – arousing Heavenly mercy for a significant, positive change in finding shidduchim for our children.

Please join mothers and singles from around the globe, fulfilling the mitzvah of Hafroshas Challah focused on realizing the dreams of thousands of singles to find their ‘bashert’. In time zones stretching from Australia to California, from Canada to South America, together, we will be reciting the same heartfelt tefillos for singles of marriageable age, an incredible demonstration of worldwide achdus-unity and the power of global tefillah.

If you did not join in last year’s event, don’t hesitate! The goal is for over 2,000 women to join together this year! The way it works is that 100 baker-participants join each what’s app group, and the names of their submitted “singles” will be read by each woman in that group when challah is taken. At the same time, each woman gives tzedokah and takes on a hachlota to try to motivate at least one other woman to light Shabbos candles. To join, you submit the name/names of your single children, being careful to ensure the correct spelling of each name, and, if your own children are married, you can submit the names of other singles for whom you will be davening and baking (see link below to join).

The three mitzvos specifically given to women are Challah, lighting Shabbos candles and Mikvah. To include all three mitzvos, each woman will be asked to try to influence one woman or girl who is not yet lighting Shabbos candles to start lighting Shabbos candles by this upcoming Rosh Hashanah and with regard to the third mitzvah, Mikvah, once again there will be an opportunity to contribute towards Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushkah through the Challah Bake. Not only is it a segulah for our singles to marry soon and fulfill the sacred mitzvah of Taharas Ha’Mishpacha – Family Purity, but is of great benefit to the Mikvah as well.

The testimonials and pictures from people who participated in last year’s event were truly heart-warming and inspirational, and came pouring in with love and appreciation, and a feeling of having been part of a holy experience.

This is your chance to experience that same feeling!


May all our efforts, tefilos and ma’asim tovim be counted and answered l’tova b’korov!
