Leah Hadad, The Hallah Lady, once worked as a lawyer, but her lifelong love for cooking and baking led her to start Tribes-A-Dozen and develop its signature product, Voilà! Hallah, a line of all-natural, kosher challah bread mixes. Her calling now is to revive the tradition of baking challah at home. Leah draws on her Yemenite-Israeli roots as she is mixin’ traditions in her kitchen for family and friends in Washington, DC. Leah has been a member of Federation’s Jewish Food Experiences® (JFE) advisory council since JFE’s inception in 2013.
