Rosh Hashanah Challahs

Special loaves for Rosh Hashanah.

Each fall Zingerman’s Bakehouse releases special limited edition challahs made with organic flour for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

It’s traditional for Eastern European Jews to bake challah in round, turban-like loaves to signify the desire for a full, complete year. Each is baked to order by hand, arriving wrapped in plastic and paper. They’re gorgeous, the color of toasted saffron, and the flavors are rich and sweet—everything the New Year should be.

Plain Turbans: Keeping with tradition, we sweeten all the egg and flour loaves with a healthy dose of Michigan clover honey.

Raisin Turbans: To make the New Year even richer, on top of the clover honey we add a generous portion of extra-large Red Flame raisins and golden raisins soaked in Myers Dark Rum®.

Moroccan Style: Braided—not round—brushed with honey and rolled in anise, poppy and sesame seeds. No raisins.

Reserve now! The challahs will be available to ship starting Monday, September 18 - just in time to arrive for the start of Rosh Hashanah on Wednesday, September 20.
