Challah covers set a special note to your Shabbat and Holidays Table.
At each Shabbat meal‚ when we place two whole loaves of bread on the table and remember the wonder and freshness that the Manna and morning dew represents. The two Challot are for us to remember that on Friday mornings‚ the manna would come down in a double portion.
We bless Hamotzie with a Challah cover draped over the loaves. The Challah cover serves a halachaic and symbolic function; as the Hamotzie blessing follows the blessing over the wine the uncovered Challah would be embarrassed by the preceding blessing over the wine.
In order to enhance the Mitzvah through aesthetics people have designed all kinds of decorative Challah covers to grace your Shabbat table.
After the blessing the Challah cover is taken off. The Challah is cut‚ dipped into salt and than passed around and each person gets a small piece to eat.
Challah covers come in many decorative designs and materials. Mostly silk and velvet are chosen than embroidered or painted by artists and craftspeople. Often writing telling this cover is only for Shabbat and Yom Tov are added‚ or excerpts of the blessing over the bread are highlighted and elaborate finishes or tassels are attached.
