Challah for Parashat Pekudei

The cloud.

By

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

For by day, a cloud was over the Tabernacle, and a fire was in it by night. (Exodus 40:38)

כי ענן על המשכן יומם ואש תהיה לילה בו


challah for pekudei

There was always a cloud above the Tabernacle–when it lifted, the Israelites would know that they too should move. This was the way they traveled about the desert, always following the cloud of God.
