Shabbat Menu – Chocolate Chip Challah

This week, we move from the ecstasy to the intricate.  From Mount Sinai to the Mishkan in all its glorious detail.  In the Ark there rested the Ten Commandments, protected by two winged cherubim made out of pure gold.  On the outside, the seven-branched menorah and the table where the “showbread” was placed.  When I think of a bread so good that I would leave it outside, next to the Menorah and sitting in the shadow of the Holy Ark, my thoughts turn to this decadent and delicious Chocolate Chip Challah Bread that is as sweet a way to start your meal as it could be to end it!!!

    This Challah looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it. I’ve never made a Challah before.

  3. This looks like one yummy Shabbat meal. Still waiting for my invitation – you got room for five?!

  4. It occurs to me that, with all that sugar, as well as the chocolate chips, this would not qualify for the hamotzi bracha.
    Has anyone checked on this?
    It looks great and I would love to make it.
