Chai on Challah


Although the word challah simply means “loaf” in Hebrew, there is no food more associated with Jewish ritual and tradition than the challah. And based on Instagram photos, the baking craze that has swept the nation during the quarantine shows that home bakers are working on more than sourdough starter.

Whether sweet or savory, we have gathered these 18 recipes to celebrate the challah and its unique place on our table.
