Commentary on Parashat Re'eh, Deuteronomy 11:26 - 16:17
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week’s Torah portion.
And do Shavuot…
וְעָשִׂיתָ חַג שָׁבֻעוֹת
And do Sukkot…
חַג הַסֻּכּת תַּעֲשֶׂה
The challahs that you see depicted are: A piece of challah matzah (for Passover); a bundle of wheat (Shavuot harvest); a lulav and etrog (what we shake under the sukkah on Sukkot).
Pronounced: KHAH-luh, Origin: Hebrew, ceremonial bread eaten on Shabbat and Jewish holidays.
Pronunced: TORE-uh, Origin: Hebrew, the Five Books of Moses.
