What's a key doing in my challah?
May 05, 2016


You did it! Matzoh crumbs are swept away, dishes and pans packed and stored until next year (in Jerusalem) and I hope you have the minhag, custom to make a list of what to do agin, buy more of or ignore for next year. Just store that list where you can find it!

We have another minhag this week—should you choose to accept it: It's called Shlissel or Key Challah, the first challah we make after Pesach. This is a well observed custom that you might want to try.

The practice is considered a segula, good omen, for parnassa, or livelihood. But it is really so much more.

Watch The Kosher Channel Shlissel Challah video to see how to shape your key challah and learn why Jewish women for generations value making their own challah for this Shabbos in particular.
