It's challah time! Some like it cakey, some like it doughy, some like it savory, some like it sweet. Jamie and Hadassah stick to their tried and true, each with a traditional recipe that will put most bakeries to shame. However, I just can't do it. I want my challah to be an adventure. I love to experiment with complex flavors, varying textures, exotic mix-ins. Sometimes I make a dud, apologizing profusely to my guests while passing around packaged pita bread. But most of the time, I am able to pull together a slice of heaven, leaving only a few scattered crumbs on the table. Here are some delicious recipes from all of us at Joy of Kosher. Let us know what you think...

Many Jewish women have the tradition to include a prayer for those who are sick or in need of a special blessing. The internet has made it possible for people all over the world to unite behind the collective power of our prayer.
