How will it work?

The Young Israel will supply basic shared ingredients (potatoes, onions, beans, barley, regular stew meat, salt, pepper, paprika and ketchup). At the same time, each team can purchase additional ingredients to be used in their chulent. These ingredients must come new, sealed, and bearing supervision (please consult the CRC list or directly with Rabbi Brander if you have any questions) to be checked before use. If purchasing these ingredients poses any financial hardship, please be in touch with Rabbi Brander.

All preparation will be done with the Young Israel’s equipment at the Young Israel on Friday afternoon, April 8. If this time does not work for you, alternate plans can be arranged; please email

On Shabbat, everyone will get a chance to sample the different chulents and vote for a favorite. The best cholent and team will be crowned champion and will be presented with the “Golden Ladle” Award.
