Halla is a special type of bread that is not like any other. I compare it to a beautiful queen who rises high and is then braided, and has a golden-brown crown full of poppy or sesame seeds.Halla is the highlight of the Shabbat meal. It’s placed in the center of the table, on a fancy cutting board. Every homemade halla has a unique texture and shape. There are endless ways to braid a halla.
