From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
The aroma was intoxicating — braids of dough formed into challah bread and shortbread cookies with cutouts in the shapes of stars and dreidels baking in several ovens.
Jonathan Frank and Mark Wilets bent over their tasks, rolling dough and threading it into the familiar rolls and bread consumed during Jewish ceremonial occasions.
It’s the middle of Hanukkah and thousands of cookies and challah rolls and loaves will flow from the hands of Frank and Wilets, and others working at Friendship Bakery, and out the door for deliveries to customers.
The new Jewish bakery on Milwaukee’s upper east side is creating a lot more than just sweets and goodies — it’s creating a job opportunity for those with special needs.
