gather around the challah, and
instead of cutting it with a knife, each
member of the family tears off a
piece. It involves everyone in the
mitzvah, and it is much more infor-
mal and heimish than having one per-
son do it, and then having the people
in the kitchen do the rest. And it is
certainly easy to do.
Level two: Consider baking the chal-
lah yourself, as a family project. Baking
the challah yourself is literally a hands-
on mitzvah, is it not? And knowing
how to make a challah is a very useful
skill to have, something that will come
in handy for years to come in the life of
the boy or girl who learns how to do it.
In this egalitarian age, who says that
only girls should know how to bake a
challah? Every Jewish wife will be
delighted if she finds out that the man
she has married knows how to and
likes to bake challah.

Level three: Ask the
rabbi for a list of
members of the con-
gregation who are in
the hospital and bring
them each a challah
in honor of Shabbat.
If you have ever been
in the hospital, you
know that it is a
lonely and a scary
experience, and it
feels especially lone-
ly if you are there
on Shabbat.
Imagine what it
would mean to a
hospital patient to
have someone
come in, smile and
wish them well,
and leave them a
loaf of challah to
enjoy in honor of
Even if you
decide to buy
instead of to
bake, consider
buying a couple
of extra challot
that you can
deliver to con-
gregants who are in the hospital in
honor of the simcha.
Level four: If you have a challah,
you have to have a challah cover. Why
not assign the honor of making one to
one of your relatives or friends who
sew? They will feel honored and
delighted to be given this mitzvah.
Or you can go on the Web and
find lots of places where you can
purchase a challah cover and help
the poor at the same time. My
favorite is Yad Lakashish, Lifeline to
the Poor, where you can not only
pick up some beautifully crafted
challah covers but can give honor
and dignity to the elderly who make
them at the same time.
Level five: Now it gets exciting.
What if you went to your local senior
citizen center, nursing home or assist-
ed-living center and asked if anyone
there still remembers how to sew and
