Blessing for the Bread (Sabbath)

When our family celebrates the holy days, Sabbath especially, with the sharing of wine, we always include Yeshua because he is central to all of the appointed times of God.  The Hebrew for the New Testament Scriptures are from a personal Bible written in Hebrew.

חלה Challah

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 or  כהן cohen.

Challah CoverIt consists of two loaves symbolizing the double portion of provision

given to the children of Israel in the wilderness.

It is covered as the manna was covered with dew.
