A lustrous raw silk fabric with artistic embroidery in the center. Yair Emanuel is back with a fresh wave of stunning expressive Shabbat tableware, this Challah cover is elegant and distinctively pretty. Standard size to fit on almost any size Challah, this fine item will add formality and meaning to your Shabbat table.
Challah covering is a tradition first mentioned in the Talmud, When God dropped the "Manne" for the Jews in the Desert he first lowered a layer of Dow on the ground to protect the "Manne", then he lowered another layer of Dow after dropping the Manne to protect it from the top. We therefore use a Tablecloth and a Challah cover as a showing for the 2 layers of Dow. The 2 Challah's are used to commemorate the double portion of Manne that fell on Friday's.
