The holiday season is here, and it’s time for delicious treats. What is yummier or makes the house smell better than fresh baked Challah, the light, eggy bread served on the Jewish holidays? It is traditionally a braided loaf, but as you can see by these tasty looking posts, it can be shaped in a variety of different ways.

Even if you aren’t a baker you can still contribute to the holiday table with a beautiful Challah cover. They can be sewn, embroidered, woven, quilted, knit, crocheted, paper-crafted and more. The covers are both symbolic and decorative, and a beautiful handmade Challah cover will add a special touch to your meal.
