Cholent: Another Portion

Topic: Cholent, Follow-up 2

Shimon Goldstein from Jerusalem writes:

I heard that the word Cholent comes from the words "Shul-end," because in many communities people didn't have private stoves, so before Shabbat they all put their cholent in the baker's oven. On Shabbat morning after shul (synagogue services) finished, everyone went to the baker to pick up their cholent.
