Each fall Zingerman’s Bakehouse releases special limited-edition challahs 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.
Our classic plain turban challahs are sweetened with a healthy dose of Michigan clover honey.
Looking for more flavorings? We also offer turban-shaped challahs studded with raisins, and a braided, spiced Moroccan-style challah.
