Slip your round challah under one of these beauties.

Nothing says “new year” quite like a beautifully golden-brown round challah, maybe studded with plump raisins. Looking to beautify the commandment of celebrating Rosh Hashanah even more? Slip that beauty under a gorgeous challah cover. Here are some ideas:

1) L’Shana Tova U’Metukah — To a good and sweet new year!

These bright colored fruits and flowers really say fresh start.
