Our Challah Breads
The braided Challah, which is made with eggs, is the Jewish Sabbath and holiday bread. It is surrounded by folklore and tradition and loaded with symbolism. On festive occasions a blessing is said over two loaves, symbolizing the two portions of the manna that were distributed on Fridays to the children of Israel.
The name "Challah", is derived from the Hebrew word meaning "portion": It is the biblical commandment that the first of your bread should be given unto the Lord.
Challah is made in various sizes and shapes, all of which have a meaning. Braided ones, which may have three, four, or six strands, are the most common, and because they look like arms intertwined, symbolize love. Three braids symbolize truth, peace, and justice.
Round loaves, where there is no beginning and no end, are baked for Rosh Hashanah to symbolize continuity.
