For the 14th year in a row, a group of volunteers at Chabad-Lubavitch of Fort Lauderdale prepared special round challahs for Jewish patients in local hospitals and at nursing homes in advance of the High Holidays, earning the attention of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Crews packed the challahs together with apples, jars of honey, and notes wishing recipients a happy and sweet new year.

“I wanted to do something for those who were not so fortunate, those who were sick or those who were in nursing homes,” project founder Racheli Smilovitz told the newspaper.

“This is my second year of holiday challah baking at the synagogue,” local resident Corinne Killian added. “It makes me feel good to do this for people who are sick.”

The volunteers included community members as young as 12 years old and Chana Lipszyc, mother of Chabad House director Rabbi Moishe Meir Lipszyc.

“We all try to help each other and it is joyful to do this for others,” said the elder Lipszyc. “We kid around and all have a good time.”
