Tradition! Sabbath and holiday meals begin with manna from heaven: two complete loaves of challah!  Why two loaves? Tradition! The Israelites received bread every day of their 40-year journey through the desert - except on the Sabbath and holidays. A double portion would appear the day before to sustain the travelers on days of rest, and that tradition continues.

If your idea of a journey is a trip to you local market, you'll want to pick up ingredients to make your own fresh challah. These beautifully braided breads are prepared traditionally without dairy, but there are non-traditional variations to try. Enjoy the aroma of fresh bread in the oven and delight in a warm slice! Don't wait for a holiday!
