Ben Wallerstein, 13, of Duluth weaves the strands of dough while creating a challah bread loaf during the Bread and Torah project workshop at Temple Israel in Duluth on Friday. Wallerstein's mother, Michele Wallerstein, said, "It is important for them to be here because not many people locally make challah bread from scratch anymore. It is important to keep the tradition alive and to teach it to the younger ones." (Clint Austin / caustin@duluthnews.com)
