Z'mirot_Page_01

Zemirot are songs and hymns, usually sung in the Hebrew, Yiddish or Ladino. The best known zemirot are those sung around the table during Shabbat and Jewish holidays. The words to many zemirot are taken from poems written by various rabbis and sages during the Middle Ages. Others are anonymous folk songs that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Challah Bake Button

The name “challah” comes from the Hebrew word for “portion:” one of the biblical commandments instructs devotees to give a portion of their bread to God as an offering of gratitude. At the Sabbath, families break off a morsel of bread after saying their blessings, uttering “Shabbat Shalom.” Click on the link above to download a copy of Michelle Lazarow’s fantastic challah recipe.
