Weight vs Heart
Thank you for demonstrating this awesome priviledge. Numbers 15 does not give a weight and it appears that we would be taking challah constantly without some weight guide ... and yet, perhaps G-d wants our heartfelt thanksgiving whenever we use the flour from our "threshing floors". I doubt HaSHem would be upset if we gave more heartfelt thanks than what was required. :-)

Thank you!
Thanks so very much for sharing this knowledge. I try to bake challah every week as do my four daughters, but not having come from an observant background, I never knew anything about these details that you shared. Knowledge is indeed power! I will now be able to fulfill the mitzvah. Thank you!
