Emanuel Challah Covers
Honor the holy Shabbat Day
Honoring the Shabbat day is one of the Ten Commandments and ever since, Jews have been particular to make this a special day. Whether it is delicious food, family gatherings or the table setting, Shabbat is always a highlight.
The Challah Cover
The most striking element on the Shabbat table with its fine dishes and settings, is the decorative Challah cover that covers the two Shabbat challahs resting underneath. It remains, prominently placed, until it is removed before reciting the challah blessing. An attractive cover sets the tone and will give atmosphere to the Shabbat table.
