Challah Boards and Knives

To make the blessing over Challah bread on Shabbat (Sabbath) and festivals, many people use a purpose made Challah board or plate. Our boards are made in Jerusalem, from glass, pewter and Jerusalem stone, are hand-painted and fired in the oven, and have a scratch-free surface. Some plates come with integral salt holders, or we sell beautiful aluminium salt holders separately, because Challah bread is sprinkled with, or dipped in salt, as a reminder that Temple sacrifices were salted, and salt adds flavour and depth, like our relationship with G-d. Bluewhite also sells a range of fabric and glass dishes which can be used for serving bread or any other food over Shabbat or Chagim (festivals).
The blessing that is said over bread is: “Blessed are You, O L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth”
