Ten Commandment Challah

ten commandment challah

May 21st 2012By tzirelchana

It is traditional to bake a challah fashioned to resemble the 10 commandments for Shavuot. This challah represents the 10 commandments--- one letter per commandment. I can't imagine writing them all out in dough. The idea comes from Rabbi Dovid Meisels's wonderful book "Shavuos Secrets." Think of this as edible arts and crafts, fun for you and the kids and certainly a wonderful centerpiece for the day we celebrate recieving the Torah.

It is important to use top quality premium ingredients (like King Arthur Flour)for this recipe to be really special. The flour really, REALLY makes a difference.

This recipe is based on the King Arthur Flour one. It is a very nice bread, but not my favorite challah. Still it is so easy and worth saving for a lazy day.

This hearty, healthy challah is made with white and whole wheat flours and features additional grains for a flavor explosion.

In addition to being good vegan practice, there is also good historic reason for not having eggs in the challah. Syrian Jews do not use eggs in their challah, because they say the Temple shewbread, which is the origin of the challah tradition did not have eggs. Furthermore, eggs transform the recipe into a cake, not bread.


Jamie Geller’s Challah Recipe

Pull Apart Challah

July 11th 2011By Jamie Geller

Here is my now famous challah recipe. Challah is the Jewish egg bread served every week on Shabbat and is usually braided. You don't have to top it, but I love it with everything topping and I have a heavy hand. I make this recipe every week and I get so much satisfaction out of the kneading and braiding it is the one dish I don't mind spending time on. And don't forget to get the kids involved. Not only are they in my prayers, but they each get their own little mound of dough to shape and decorate as they like. I like everything, they like sprinkles, we are all happy. Enjoy this challah recipe this Shabbat and for many years to come.

Prep the night before and place in a warm and toasty oven in the AM (If you don’t keep your oven on over yuntif you can bake this in advance and just reheat on a hot plate or in a warming drawer.)


Individual Apple-Stuffed Challah

apple challah

November 30th 2011By Jamie Geller

When our patriarch Yaakov masqueraded as Eisav to obtain his rightful "firstborn" blessing from his father, Yitzchak, he donned Eisav's cloak. Yitzchak exclaimed, "the fragrance of my son is like the fragrance of a field that G-d has blessed" and blessed Yaakov. The Talmud identifies the fragrance as an apple orchard, and the Vilna Gaon says this happened on Rosh Hashanah. We eat apples (tons of them) because we too want those holy blessings given to Yaakov.

Here's a honey of a challah, made with "white" whole wheat flour in your bread machine. Milled from hard white wheat, white whole wheat flour has a lighter color and milder flavor than regular whole wheat.
