This week on Pandemix, we hear from Hannah Wallenfels, a graduate of the Williamsville East High School class of 2020. Hannah speaks to her experience graduating in a pandemic, how Jewish Buffalo shaped her into who she is, and of course, how to make her favorite quarantine recipe: a babka challah.
