Challah or hallah is a traditional Jewish bread eaten on Shabbat and Jewish holidays (except Passover, when leavened bread is not allowed). This association with Judaism is most prevalent in the United States, as challah is also a traditional bread in numerous European countries, such as Hungary, among local non-Jewish peasant populations.

On Shabbat every Jew is commanded to eat three meals (one on Friday night and two on Saturday). In Judaism, a "meal" includes bread. Hence, Jews will traditionally eat challah at the beginning of their Shabbat meal. As with any other type of bread, the blessing "Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha'olam, hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz" is recited before the challah is eaten. Translated, it means "Blessed are you, Lord, our God, king of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth."

The Original Challah Dough Cover: Smart—This smooth ‘Flour Sack’ material is the fabric preferred by chefs to cover rising dough.

Square, oversized cloth is designed to fit neatly over a large round bowl. Food-safe, color-fast inks stand up to many washes.

Practical— This cloth has one clearly defined, designated use. You can be sure that the cloth you use to cover your Challah dough was never used to wipe counters or floors.

Beautiful— Every week, the large bowl of rising dough sits on the counter for an hour or more. Make it pleasing to look at and at the same time reinforce the spirit of L’Kovod Shabbos Kodesh
