Challah Cover, Challah Plate, Challah Tray, Challah Board Basket
Well, you wouldn't want to put your Challah loaves directly on the table, would you? Absolutely not, that is ridiculous. Challah is the main part of the Shabbat meal and the centerpiece of the Shabbat table. And if you didn't think so before, consider this: The blessing that you say over the Challah covers the entire meal as less important side dishes. In fact, that's why Kiddush has to come first, so that you can bless over the wine at all. Now, you may be thinking that the pretty embroidered Challah covers are enough to make it as fancy as the Shabbat table deserves, but once you see what beautiful, artful options are out there, you'll realize how much they can add to your special family Shabbat meal. Gorgeously designed in a range of styles and finishes by the brands and products that we offer, you are certain to find one that exactly suits your needs and taste and these wonderful designs will surely bring your Shabbat table to the next level. Challah blessings have a lot of interesting traditions and customs and the meaning of the blessing is beautiful and truly gives you a new appreciation for the wonderful world god gifted us.The blessing over the Challah goes: "Baruch ata Hashem, elokeinu melech ha'olam, hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz", which translates to Blessed are you Hashem, our god and ruler of the universe, who brought forth bread from the ground. All of the blessings, and especially ones like this, are wonderful in that they instill that appropriate appreciation for all of the things that we have, all of the things that we might otherwise take for granted. Such as the miracles of nature that allow us to take things that grow from the ground and prepare such amazing foods like bread. And who else to thank, but god, the ultimate source of all the bounty we enjoy, he who created us, and created this world for us, that we may live and prosper and enjoy the Shabbat just as he did on the seventh day of creation. Who made the earth flow with edibles and gave us the ability to enjoy it all and be healthy happy human beings. Challah is a wonderful example of the beauty that can be made with the materials God gave us, delicious and sweet fluffy bread that makes everything warm and fuzzy feeling, the epitome of cozy happy Jewish comfort food, but just as beautiful on the outside as on the inside, with the wonderful braids and elaborate designs and the shiny perfect brown crust around the white fluffy inside.
And how better to celebrate your Shabbat meal and the bounty that God gives us and the beauty of the loaves themselves both inside and out, on the best day of the week, at the family gathering of a delicious meal, than a beautiful Challah board to tie it all together and give you the amazing experience that Shabbat is meant to be.
