Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week's Torah portion.




Do Passover...

וְעָשִׂיתָ פֶּסַח


And do Shavuot...

וְעָשִׂיתָ חַג שָׁבֻעוֹת


And do Sukkot...

חַג הַסֻּכּת תַּעֲשֶׂה


(Deuteronomy 16:1,10,13)

shalosh regalim

The challahs that you see depicted are: A piece of challah matzah (for Passover); a bundle of wheat (Shavuot harvest); a lulav and etrog (what we shake under the sukkah on Sukkot).
