An excellent hands on experience of making breads of the Beit HaMikdash.
We went to Les Saidel’s Breads of the Bait HaMikdash workshop with 5 children, ages 10-19, and everyone LOVED it. There was never a dull moment. We baked the 2 halechem, four different types of bread from the Korban Todah, and the lechem hapanim! We learned about the korbanot, the ingredients and the baking methods that the Kohanim used. Les kept the workshop moving at a perfect pace, and had a great balance between sharing information and giving everyone a hands-on, interactive experience. While waiting for bread to bake, Les had lots of themed surprises to keep us engaged. I can’t recommend this workshop highly enough! A definite “Must do” to add to your bucket list!
Frances Arking We did this workshop last week. It was great and so informative. I was super impressed with Les Saidel’s knowledge of the prep that the cohanim did for the Beit hamikdash. Great workshop.
We had an amazing day as a bat mitzvah gift for my daughter. We did an Italian theme. Enjoyed the bread and pasta right after with our cousin and family. Highly recommended
We have just been to an Italian bread making work shop with Les Saidel, and it has been the high light of our holiday so far. Together with my husband and 26, 21, and 15 year old ‘kids’, we mixed, and kneaded and baked, made fresh pasta ( and ate it!) and listened to Les tell us bread history and nutritional bread facts. We joined up with a delightful American family, and we all left with recipes and bags of warm freshly baked loaves, We would highly recommend the experience and wish the Saidels lots of luck !

Had a great time at סיידל סדנאות לאפיית לחמים Saidel Artisan Baking Institute Breads of the Bet Hamikdash workshop. It was fun, informative, and delicious! Wonderful to get to know people who are sincerely passionate about what they’re doing and sharing it with others!
I know it’s been recommended before but I just needed to say how fabulous Saidels bread workshop was! We were taught all about different breads used in the Beit Hamikdash. We got to make 4 different kinds of bread and watch a fifth type (one of the lechem hapanim) being made. Fascinating and tasty! We each took home a big bag of different breads and a lot of new knowledge. Highly highly recommended!
We had an amazing time at the Breads of the Bais Hamikdash workshop at Saidel’s Bakery in Karnei Shomron! Kids ages 3-10 but appropriate for all ages (definitely interesting for teens). I learned so much myself and you bake a variety of breads that were used in the Beis Hamikdash. A fabulous, one-on-a-kind, hands on experience!
Well done to Les and Sheryl Saidel for a worth while trip to their bakery. My 10 year and I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hour work shop. Good value for money .09-7941222
Just finished Saidel Bakery Breads of the Bet HaMikdash worshop. Absolutely fantastic. Steeped in the sources, fascinating presentation, great bread making. Highly recommend…. Ages 6-120.
We just went to this workshop with a family group aged 4 – 68. Everyone loved it! The kids were totally engaged and the adults loved it as well. Really brings what had previously been dry concepts to living-color life. Highly recommend!
I can also add our recommendation for the bread workshop at Saidel’s. Our kids who were aged 12, 14 and 16 at the time all loved it.
We had an amazing day as a bat mitzvah gift for my daughter. We did an Italian theme. Enjoyed the bread and pasta right after with our cousin Maya Pianka Berretta and family. Highly recommended
If you are looking for a great activity for the whole family, I highly recommend Saidel Bakery’s “Lechem Hapanim and other breads of the Beit HaMikdash”, hands-on workshop in Ganei Shomron. The workshop lasted about 3.5 hours, in which we saw impressive and informative slideshows, made 5 different types of bread that were made in the times of the Beit Hamikdash and dressed up like Kohanim and entered a replica of the Mishkan. We each went home with a big bag of bread. Les Saidel is very knowledgable (expert on the topic) and was a great presenter. All of our kids enjoyed and thanked us for taking them. It’s for kids 5 and over – our youngest who is 4 was free and he worked with me.

Was fantastic, my 6 year old loved it!!! Was 110 a person if under 3 people, or 80 a person over
Can’t say enough good things about Breads of the Beis Hamikdash workshop at Saidel’s bakery in Karnei Shomron. It was educational, interesting and interactive. Kids (aged 5-10) and adults all loved it.
We went with our family last year together with my parents (ages 9-74). My mother had such a great time, she arranged for a group of her friends to do the workshop and they also had a great time! Highly recommended.
We did this workshop last week. It was great and so informative. I was super impressed with Les Saidel’s knowledge of the prep that the cohanim did for the Beit hamikdash. Great workshop.
Also had a Greta time doing this workshop, highly reccomend
Recommendation for Saidel’s donut workshop! Was there yesterday with teenagers and little ones and everyone had a great time. It was messy and fun and informative and the donuts were delicious!!
Highly recommend Artisan bread baking workshop by Saidel’s Bakery . They came to my mother-in-law’s house with all their equipment and ran a 3 hour workshop on baking Italian breads and making fresh pasta. The workshop was held with 15 ppl, ages 6-adult and everyone loved it, not to mention the food was delicious!!!! There are more details on the various workshops they do and services they provide for events (birthday parties, Bat mitzvah’s etc) on their website
Our kids (13 and 9) really enjoyed Saidel’s donut workshop. We made and decorated donuts and the kids had a fun workbook to go through while the adults had a bakery tour. Apparently you can book various baking workshops throughout the year and for big groups they will come to you.
We just finished hosting an original birthday party, brought to us by Les Saidel of Saidel Artisan Baking Institute and his right hand and wife Sheryl Levy Saidel. The Saidels provided the makings of amazing donuts/sufganiot from flour to fillings and toppings, and entertained 23 6th grade boys for 3 hours. The boys made dough, heard some jokes, practiced “morale” singing and in general had a wonderful time. Our party was the Saidels’ famous “Sadnat Donuts” which we just had to try in honor of our youngest son’s non bar mitzva. If you are looking for an original idea for a memorable event, this is the one to consider! I’ve read so many reviews here of their various workshops, and our own experience today reflects the positive feedback presented by others. Recommended to look them up… they have workshops for different size groups, small to large!
I was in the workshop of Saidel’s family with my 3 kids 5,9&11. A warming welcome with a man who loves what he does. We cook pasta, focaccia, chiabata and gresini. We ate our pasta there and came home with all the sorts of bread we baked after a 2,5 hours activity. 75₪ per person, it worth it.
We did the chanuka workshop a couple of years ago. It was so much fun, and interesting too, and we came home with a TON of stuff!
Great activity! We had a wonderful visit to Saidel’s Bakery in Karnei Shomron this morning. Fully fun, educational and delicious seminar for the whole family about breads from Paris. My kids loved it! Call them: 09-794-1222.
The breads of the Beit Hamikdash was one of the most memorable and interesting experiences we had in Israel. Mr. Seidel enabled us to visualize, bake and even taste the different breads that were prepared in the beit hamikdash. We learned a great deal about an important topic about which we knew little. The workshop made an ancient, abstract, mysterious process accessible. The experience was priceless, and we can’t stop talking and thinking about it.

Did French bread baking workshop with 3 boys (ages 11, 9 and 6) last summer and it was fantastic. We came home with lots of delicious bread and recipes we could use at home (and have used successfully over and over again!) Plan to go back again this summer for a different workshop.
we did the chanukah one and it was great. All our kids from ages 3 to 14 enjoyed it. We came home with TONS of stuff-yum!!
Did this with ages 5 and 8, they had a great time
I went with 2 boys ages 5 and 8 and they loved it!
We attended The ‘Taste of Paris’ Summer Baking Workshops at Saidels Bakery. I can’t recommend this workshop enough. This isn’t your typical stand-at-a-table-and-knead-some-dough experience; this is a serious, hands on, multi-sensory extravaganza!The Saidel Boulangerie is based on the famous Poilane Bakery of Paris (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lionel_Poilâne) and is an impressive replica. We saw how the flour is ground and learned about all the intricacies of lighting the oven and adjusting the temperature. Chef Eli’s stories about home grown yeasts were just fascinating! Chef Eli taught us how to bake two different types of baguette and olive fougasse (like a focaccia). We learned about the prestigious ‘Compagnon du Devoir’ the French bakers’ guild and tried our hands at bake shaping new shapes of bread, in the hope of being accepted into the guild. My first time driving to the shomron. Was easy and not too far We were there for 3 hours and we left with our arms full to overflowing with delicious breads!
