Challah for Parashat Ki Teitzei

Cross-dressers.

Commentary on Parashat Ki Teitzei, Deuteronomy 21:10 - 25:19

Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week’s Torah portion.

A man’s garment will not be on a woman, and a man will not wear woman’s dress. (Deuteronomy 22:5)

לא-יִהְיֶה כְלִי-גֶבֶר עַל-אִשָּׁה, וְלא-יִלְבַּשׁ גֶּבֶר שִׂמְלַת אִשָּׁה

challah for ki tetze
