10 Challah Covers Perfect for Rosh Hashanah

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.


2) Silk Challah Cover with Pomegranates

We love this classic pattern, and pomegranates add a festive touch! The circular text around the edge is the prayer Shalom Aleichem.


3) Multi-Color Pomegranates Challah Cover

Pomegranates never get old, especially in many colors!

7) Geese and Feather Embroidered Challah cover

Love this Persian-inspired design! This challah cover can be used year-round; the text says “Shabbat and Holidays.”
