Challah

Challah is a popular tradition in the Jewish culture. On Sabbath two loaves are prayed over before broken and eaten. It is meant to represent the manna that came from the sky on the Exodus.

When I made the bread I got very discouraged because it was very runny like pancake mix. Not bread dough. After giving up, my mom put on her ‘Super Mom’ cape and came to the rescue. She added more flour and kneaded it longer.

It soon came time for me to braid the bread. My braiding skills aren’t the most impressive thing on earth. In saying that I thought I did a wonderful job braiding bread.

I baked till golden brown.

I found it apropos that I was reading The Chosen at the time of making this bread. Challah is mentioned in the book!!
