Braid the Challah shows exactly how a bowl full of batter turns into a beautiful challah… while a cheerful group of small children demonstrate the actions that go along with each step. They spin like a mixer, stand on their toes as they rise, and pinch off a piece of dough for the mitzvah — What fun!

About the Artist:
Patti Argoff received a BFA from The School of Visual Arts in 1981, but actually was drawing long before that- she was drawing before she could talk. At least that’s what her mother claims. Patti works in traditional watercolor on paper. Her paintings of animals, subjects in historical costume, kids and family situations have a lively animated quality, while paying close attention to detail and often with a wink of humor.
When she’s not drawing and painting, Patti enjoys working in stained glass and is involved in fostering and re-homing stray or abandoned Chihuahuas. She also teaches a class in painting in watercolors for adults through a local high school’s continuing education program.
Patti has illustrated numerous books, including Miller the Green Caterpillar (2004 River Road Press), Happy Birthday To Me (2006 Hachai Publishing) and Mitzvah Guess Who? (2020 Hachai Publishing).
