How-To: Braid A Round Challah For Rosh Hashanah

Well, I don’t know much about baking bread or Rosh Hashanah, but this seems like a pretty sweet and timely tutorial for making Round Challah.

Here it is dear readers at long last, a tutorial on how to braid gorgeous round challah loaves, just in time for Rosh HaShana! We have the custom to eat round loaves on Rosh HaShana to symbolize the continuity of life, and on Rosh HaShana we dip the challah in honey (rather than salt) to symbolize our hopes for a sweet new year.
