Pomegranate Embroidered Challah Cover
This is used to cover the traditional braided Shabbat bread called Challah. The placement of the challah under the challah cover is to symbolize the double portion of manna, the daily food given by God to the Israelites after the Exodus, that would fall on Friday so they would have enough for Shabbat. This Challah cover is made of white-colored satin and decoratively embroidered with bright red pomegranates. The pomegranate has long been a symbol of the many commandments of God, each of the many seeds representing each good deed we do in God's name.
