Bread for Shabbat!

Keep Shabbat home page2

Shabbat has many meanings and there are many ways to experience and celebrate it.

One of the most common and delicious traditions in preparation for Shabbat is baking challah. In many homes in Israel and around the world, it is customary to bake challahs and eat them at the Shabbat meal. Challah symbolises home, warmth and family. The scent of the challah that spreads through the house is a sure sign of the approaching Shabbat.

Our challah challenge invites all participants to come up with a creative, unique or innovative recipe for their own challah. Just as The Shabbat Project connects people and Jews from so many different places and backgrounds, we want to weave one big story out of all your challahs. One Shabbat. One challah.

Bake and tag!
