The Great Challah Bake
OCTOBER 27-28, 2017
Blessed are You G-d, Who made us holy with the commandments,
and commanded us to separate challah from the dough.
We anticipate the arrival of our seventh day of the week, Shabbat, with great eagerness. The Torah explains, “Six days you shall work, and the seventh day is Shabbat, for the Lord your God.” (Deut. 5:13). Shabbat is a “taste of Heaven on Earth” our sages tell us. The unique tranquility and intimacy that fills the homes of those who fully experience a Shabbat is also filled with wonderful smells of delicious food, in particular challah.”
