From the rejuvenating waters of the mikvah, to the memory of Miriam’s triumphant dancing after the splitting of the Red Sea, water plays an important role in the collective memory of the Jewish woman. In this week’s Parsha, the Torah describes the purifying power of water to transform vessels that have become unclean. It is, in a very profound way, a new beginning. After two straight weekends of matzoh we look forward to a Shabbat with my most favorite treat, Challah bread. We maintain the mystique of that curious combination of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen with a wonderful Water Challah recipe that will be a splashing success at your dinner table.
