Loaves of Love That is just the coolest, most amazing idea! I absolutely love that idea! Mazel Tov Chaya and family.....a room full of mitzvos....wow! my only question: did each person "take challah" individually or was all the dough combined to do the mitzvah? cool. I love that idea. thanks for sharing. Reply
