Challah for Parashat Ki Tavo
The city and the field.
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week's Torah portion.
You will be blessed in the city and you will be blessed in the field. (Deuteronomy 28:3)
בָרוךְ אַתָה בָעִיר ובָרוךְ אַתָה בַשׂדֶה
Here we see the city of Jerusalem, with the Western Wall and the cityscape above. Below, we see a field, full of abundantly growing plants. The sign at the field says "Sde Halomot," meaning "Field of Dreams." This sign exists at an actual field: it's the entrance sign for the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center Farm.
