This particular Shabbat is a special one because it is the week of Shlissel Challah. 


This tradition has become increasingly popular over the last few years. Shlissel challah is challah shaped to look like a key – or some people actually bake keys inside their challah (well-wrapped, don’t worry!).

The tradition is all about bringing blessings into our homes, with a special emphasis on parnasah (livelihood). 

Whether or not it is your custom to make challah this week, you can still learn all about this beautiful tradition here.

Shabbat Shalom,
