What is the religious significance of challah bread?

Asked 3 years ago

Hi, I've been learning about different types of bread and how to make them, etc. Recently, we've touched on Challah from Israel. Now I'm intrigued. Is challah bread biblical? If so, where is it mentioned in the bible?

Challah bread has a Biblical history from the time of Moses in Exodus 16, where God instructed Moses to set aside a portion of each loaf and use it as an offering to local Jewish priests. Today this tradition is still upheld where a piece of bread is burnt inside the oven before the other bread is baked.
