A recent November Thursday evening was the first time in history that women around the world – from Israel, Dubai, Bahrain, Turkey, Europe and the US baked challah simultaneously on Zoom.
Challah is never just another type of bread – it’s in a category all on its own.
Zach Banner of the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers now knows what challah tastes like — and he can say the word properly.
Every year after Pesach I buy a one pound bag of yeast and it lasts through the year and I use it to make challah. So I’m still pursuing the quixotic quest to make the perfect challah.
I don’t know how much worse things will get this year, but I do know I did with bread what I rarely manage to do with words.
