An elegant Challah knife will add a finishing touch to your Shabbat table, enhancing the meal and bringing to the occasion a dash of beauty and style. It is placed on the Challah board alongside the Challahs and over it is the decorative Challah cover. The family is seated around the table. Kiddush has been recited and everyone has washed their hands. The head of the family removes the Challah Cover and the pretty Challah knife is revealed.
Before reciting the blessing, a slight indentation is made in the challah with the knife, the blessing is recited aloud and then the challah is cut and distributed around the table. A sharp quality knife will cut it quickly and efficiently and if the knife is elegant, we are convinced that the challah will be tastier too!
To help you cut your Challah in style, Judaicadosh offers you a full selection of knives. Their decorative handles are enhanced with texts or colorful designs. All have top quality blades that will effortlessly slice your challah in style and give you years of service. There are no rules regarding the shape, size or style of the Challah knife handle so take your choice from our selection.
Many of our knives are designed by famous Jewish artists and the design and color of the knife will coordinate with their Challah Boards or other tableware bringing superb elegance to your Shabbat table. If you are looking for an exclusive knife where the name speaks, choose from our selection of prestigious Agayof or Caesarea Arts knives with their delightful pastel or rainbow colors. A popular choice of Challah knives is a Dorit Judaica design.
