Challah by the Forward

WATCH: How To Make A Czernowitzer Challah

This article originally appeared in the Yiddish Forverts.

In the video bellow, using the Czernowitzer challah recipe published by Maggie Glezer in “The Blessing of Bread” as a basis, Rukhl Schaechter and Eve Jochnowitz, co-hosts of the Forverts cooking show, “Eat In Good Health,” demonstrate how to shape the challah in several ways, ranging from sophisticated to simple enough that a child can do it.

As Glezer writes in the book:

Enjoy the show, and as we say in Yiddish: “Est gezunterheyt!”
