Challah for Parashat Shoftim
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week's Torah portion.
If a dead body is found...your elders and judges will go out and measure the distance from the body to the nearest cities.
כִּי-יִמָּצֵא חָלָל...וְיָצְאוּ זְקֵנֶיךָ, וְשׁפְטֶיךָ; וּמָדְדוּ, אֶל-הֶעָרִים, אֲשֶׁר סְבִיבת הֶחָלָל
Here we see a John Doe challah. He is surrounded by tape, just like in television shows. At his side is a challah measuring tape, which will be used to measure the distance from the body to the nearest city, as the Torah commands.
