Commentary on Parashat Tetzaveh, Exodus 27:20 - 30:10
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week’s Torah portion.
And thou shalt make a breastplate of judgment…and thou shalt set in it settings of stones, four rows of stones, (Exodus 28: 15,17)
וְעָשִׂיתָ חשֶׁן מִשְׁפָּט…וּמִלֵּאתָ בוֹ מִלֻּאַת אֶבֶן, אַרְבָּעָה טוּרִים אָבֶן
All of these stones and the colors of the “gems” are accurate to the type of stone described in the Torah.
Pronounced: KHAH-luh, Origin: Hebrew, ceremonial bread eaten on Shabbat and Jewish holidays.
