Challah for Parashat Pekudei

The cloud.

Commentary on Parashat Pekudei, Exodus 38:21 - 40:38

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
