Challah for Parashat Ekev
The seven species.
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week's Torah portion.
A land of wheat and barley, and vines [grapes] and figs and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and [date] honey. (Deuteronomy 8:8)
אֶרֶץ חִטָּה וּשְׂערָה, וְגֶפֶן וּתְאֵנָה וְרִמּוֹן; אֶרֶץ-זֵית שֶׁמֶן, וּדְבָשׁ
The shape of the challah is of ancient Israel. Though you can't tell by looking at it, the dough was made with all seven species.
