Commentary on Parashat Ki Teitzei, Deuteronomy 21:10 - 25:19
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week’s Torah portion.
A man’s garment will not be on a woman, and a man will not wear woman’s dress. (Deuteronomy 22:5)
לא-יִהְיֶה כְלִי-גֶבֶר עַל-אִשָּׁה, וְלא-יִלְבַּשׁ גֶּבֶר שִׂמְלַת אִשָּׁה
The torah warns against it, but I couldn’t help but cross-dress these man and woman challahs…as you can see, the challah with the breasts is wearing a tie.
