Take & Bake is a contemporary and refreshing guide to the laws of taking challah.
With creative style and flair, the book thoroughly debunks any myth that could minimize or downplay the scope and relevance of these halachos. Adding to the book’s accessibility are the dozens of illustrative examples that utilize familiar scenarios with colorful characters to deepen the understanding and application of the laws being explained.
The various chapters include:
How To Take Challah
A clear step-by-step guide to correct observance of this mitzvah
What to do when the challah piece has gone missing
Communal challah events and what can go wrong by them
The Challah Chronicles
A real-life collection of challah-compromised situations
The book also includes a comprehensive index, a quick-reference “challah-troubleshooter” guide, and a section of notes and source material for the scholar seeking greater insight.
