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. (Deuteronomy 31:9)

הַכּהֲנִים בְּנֵי לֵוִי, הַנּשְׂאִים אֶת-אֲרוֹן בְּרִית יְהוָה


kohanim ark

Here we see two Levites carrying the ark. At the top of the ark are the two keruvim (cherubs) that perch face to face.
