Parting of the Sea Challah for Parashat B'Shalah

I wanted to get this up for you before this past Shabbat, but alas, I was only able to get you a preview!

And Moses said unto the people: 'Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will work for you to-day; for whereas ye have seen the Egyptians to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD will fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace... And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

Parshat B'Shalah is one of the Hazz's and my favorite Torah portions.  For verse 14, he encouraged me to really give a loud chant in the Torah when Moses says "Have no fear!"  B'Shalah also has the Song of the Sea, which has a distinction appearance in the Torah.  Very cool, no?

So, we thought we'd whip up a little Parting of the Sea Challah.  We used sprinkles to make it blue, so it basically tasted like a doughnut.  It was great and really fun to make!

  2. It's interesting to take a look for other cultures and how people cook their national food. Thank you for this short review. When I will be on the last year of college I want to write my research paper about the way people spend Shabbat all over the world. I think it will be interesting to make such research.
