Challah Trays & Knives
The term challah originally refers to the mitzvah of separating a portion of the dough before braiding. This portion of dough is set aside as a tithe for the Kohen. In Hebrew, this commandment is called hafrashat challah, or "separating challah". This obligation applies to any loaf of bread, not only to the Sabbath bread. The word challah is also used to refer to a specific type of bread loaf.
Either or we all know there isn't a better taste of a fresh challah and the beauty of breaking bread with family and friends.
The prayer for the Challah is as follows:
ברוך אתה “ אלהינו הלך העולם אשר קדשנו במצוותיו וציונו להפריש חלה
"Boruch Atoh Ado-nay Elo-heinu Melech Ha'Olam Asher Kidshanu B'mitzvosav V'tzivanu L'hafrish Challah"
"Blessed are You, Lord, our G-d, King of the Universe, Who has sanctified us with his Commandments and commanded us to separate challah (from the dough)."
