Mazel tov to Paperny Family JCC's Nessie Hollander and her Golden Age volunteers whose challah was featured on the broadway production of Fiddler On The Roof from January 10 to 15. The challah appeared in the Shabbat dinner scene of the musical, but the Golden Age group went above and beyond, making enough challah to feed the full cast and crew. Fiddler may have wrapped up in Calgary, but extra loaves have already traveled to Vancouver for the next production. The group was even featured on Global News, the Calgary Herald, CBC, and LiveWire Calgary. Join us in congratulating this remarkable team!
