Challah Covers by Galilee Silk
What is a Challah Cover?
The two plaited Shabbat breads, known as challahs, are covered until after the ritual hand washing. Only then is the cover removed before reciting the blessing and cutting the challah. So, in addition to concealing the bread, the cover plays an important decorative role. It is the focal point of the table and its material and design give depth and meaning to the challah blessing ceremony.
