Blessing for Bread – Challah

Challah Cover

When our family the Sabbath, we include word of Yeshua because he is central to the ‘appointed times’ of God.

Challah is the special braided bread that is eaten on the Sabbath.   Challah is derived from the small piece that is pulled off the bread and given to the priests. Challah has its root meaning in ‘bride.’

The Sabbath challah consists of two loaves symbolizing the double portion of provision given to the Israelites in the wilderness. It is covered as the manna was covered with dew.

.ברוך אתה יהוה אלוהינו מלך העולם, המוציא לחם מן הארץ

Baruch atah Adonai Elohenu Melech haOlam, haMotzei lechem meen ha’aretz.

Blessed are you Adonai our God, King of the Universe who brings forth bread from the earth. 


“Yeshua said, “I AM the Bread of Life.  He who comes to me will never be hungry; he who trusts in me will never be thirsty” (John 6:35).
