Leading Israel Judaica artist Dorit has imagined the traditional challah cover with a modern twist. Her black and white pomegranate challah cover is a striking addition to your Rosh Hashanah or Shabbat table and is the perfect way to bring the spirit of the Holy Land to your special meal.
The challah cover features a striking black and white image of pomegranates, one of the seven species of the land of Israel described in the Bible. “For the Lord, your God is bringing you into a good land, a land with streams and springs and fountains issuing from plain and hill; a land of wheat, barley, of vines, figs and pomegranates; a land of olive trees and honey.” (Deut. 8:7-8)
Jewish tradition also teaches that the pomegranate symbolizes righteousness, knowledge, and wisdom because it is said to have 613 seeds. Each ruby red seed represents one of the 613 commandments given in the Bible.
Pomegranates are a beautiful way to represent the Holy land in your home. Dorit has decorated her gorgeous challah cover with pomegranates and the words, written in Hebrew, “For the honor of Shabbat and Yom Tov.” It is a lovely way to cover your challah loaves at your Shabbat and holiday table.
