From what I’ve read its exactly the wrong season for challah, being as we are in the middle of Passover.  However, I’m engaging in a bit of inter-cultural/inter-denominational cross-pollination – challah is a bread baked to celebrate salvation and as its Easter it seems like an appropriate time to indulge in a celebratory bread… that’s my story anyway!   587 more words
