Challah for Parashat Vayelekh
Bearing the ark.
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week's Torah portion.
The priests, the sons of Levi, the carriers of the ark of the covenant of God.
הַכּהֲנִים בְּנֵי לֵוִי, הַנּשְׂאִים אֶת-אֲרוֹן בְּרִית יְהוָה
Here we see two Levites carrying the ark. At the top of the ark are the two keruvim (cherubs) that perch face to face.
