Traditionally, challah bread is defined as any bread made for use in Jewish ritual. This earthy, tasty, crispy, gooey bread is part of almost every Jewish holiday. The origin of the word “challah” comes from a Hebrew word for the dough given back as an offering to the priests every Shabbat. The strong connection between Jews, God, and this bread, goes back as far as the first five books of the Bible: As the Israelites are about to end their exile, God commands them to show gratitude by setting aside a portion, or “challah,” of all the bread they make after entering the Holy Land.
