The by-election was called on the resignation of Liberal prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull whose electorate is home for a large Jewish community.

The CEO of OBK Rabbi Dr Dovid Slavin explained to the candidates of how the kitchen works six days a week preparing for cooks and bakes for the needy and for large institutions including the Westmead Children’s Hospital.

Following the briefing, the nine donned aprons and headed to the kitchen workbenches where they prepared vegetables.

Next came the on hands demonstration of baking challah lead by Rebbetzin Laya Slavin as the candidates followed her moves.
