Get ready for next Shabbat with your own made Challah (חָלָה)!

One of the Jewish traditions for Shabbat (שַׁבָּת) and holidays (ch'agim - חַגִים) is to eat Challah, according to the following prayer: “בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם הַמּוֹצִיא לֶחֶם מִן הָאָרֶץ” (Baruch ata adonai eloheyno melech ha'olam ha'motzi lech'em min ha'aretz) - Blessed you god, our god king of the world, who brings bread out of Earth.
