Meet Matan. Matan is in Year 1 at Bellevue Hill. Through our BJE programs Matan connected to the special feeling of Shabbat with Challah 🍞 on Fridays.

In lockdown Matan wanted to recreate this special feeling so he turned to his passion for baking and created ‘Neumann Chefs’ - his own delicious challah business! 👨‍🍳

DM @kazneu to order challah or other delicious baked goods from Matan
