Eight-braid Challah (img: Sean Patrick Doyle)

Eight-braid Challah (img: Sean Patrick Doyle)

Two of the holiest days of the Jewish calender fell during our three week layoff from Fiddler. My boyfriend David is Jewish, and if you haven’t gathered by now, he is quite the baker. So we made traditional challah for his family’s break fast on Yom Kippur (read: David made the dough, I helped with the braiding). He follows this recipe from the New York Times Magazine, and omits the sesame seeds. ┬áChallah is normally formed into rounds at this time of the year, to represent it’s cyclical nature, but we were happy enough to get the eight braids right!
