Becky first started baking challah during the pandemic, finding kneading dough to be therapeutic. She'd incorporate fun flavors like cinnamon sugar, za'atar, and everything bagel into her culinary creations. She loved challah baking so much that she has launched her own specialty challah business called "Yalla for Challah," selling her unique brand of challahs to the Chicago Jewish community.
The Connecticut native first found her way to Chicago when she took a job with the Jewish National Fund-USA, where she spent nearly five years connecting young professionals to their passion for Israel--and "loving every minute of it!"
These days, Becky works in development at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, where she volunteers for the Jewish Law Student Association--planning holiday dinners for Jewish students and connecting them to Jewish alumni.
She also presides over the Sharsheret's Chicago Young Professional Board, where she supports women living with breast and ovarian cancer and their families.
This millennial, who connects Jewishly in so many ways, believes in helping other Jewish millennials find their Jewish fit, too.
