Challah: Bringing Our Blessings to God

Bread, or challah, is the ultimate hard-work food. In ancient times, the first step in producing bread was making flour, a tedious task that involved separating the wheat grains from their shaft and then grinding the grain into fine flour. However, even before this primary step, someone had to plant the wheat, tend to it, water it, and then harvest it.

This elaborate and ancient ceremony has much to teach us today about gratitude and giving back to God from the gifts that He has blessed and bestowed upon us throughout each year.
