A bread rooted in tradition and laden with symbolism, challah dates back to the 15th century where it was made by Ashkenazie Jews in Eastern Europe. While the most common shape is the braid, its strands representing arms intertwined in love, there are many shapes, each having significance in marking certain occasions. Challah Turbans are made for the Jewish High Holidays and represent the continuity of life.
