Season 01, Episode 16: Carly Zimmerman – Eradicating Hunger, One Challah at a Time


This week I catch up with Carly Zimmerman, CEO of Challah for Hunger.  Challah for Hunger brings people together to bake and sell challah in an effort to raise money and awareness for social justice causes. Carly is a chapter founder and alumna of Challah for Hunger.  Carly holds a M.A. in Jewish Professional Studies from the Spertus Institute of Jewish Learning and Leadership and a B.A. in History and Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to coming to Challah for Hunger, Carly worked at the Jewish Life Director at Hillel at Pitt and at Temple University.

We chat about her journey to Challah for Hunger, why she believes in working with college students to change the world, and why challah is the most meaningful Jewish food.
