Join SHINE and NCSY for a post-Passover challah bake.

What is “Shlissel”Challah?

In some Jewish circles, there is the tradition of baking a special type of challah for the first Shabbat after Passover. Made either in the shape of a key or with a key baked inside, the special bread is known as shlissel challah, with shlissel being the Yiddishword for “key.”

The custom is popular in communities that descend or have traditions coming from Poland, Germany and Lithuania.

The making of this particular shape or style of challah is considered by those who bake it to be a segula (ritual or good omen) for parnassa (livelihood). Why? There are many reasons, sources, and histories that highlight this uniquely-styled bread for Shabbat.

This event is open to Men, Women and Children
