It’s that time of year again. Time for the great shlissel-challah debate. Is it minhag Chabad? And if it’s not, can we still do it? or does it go against the grain? What about the segulah for parnassah that it’s supposed to carry? Then there are some who claim it’s a custom that was picked up from non-jews over the centuries. Choose your side on this battle.
While the whole argument was going on, an entrepreneur wasn’t sitting on his hands. He thought of a way to make it simple and easy for those who do make shlissel challah. Why bother sticking a “key” shaped lump of dough on top of your regularly shaped challah when you can have your “cake” and eat it too. This shlissel-shaped pan will make your twice-a-year challah baking task a breeze!
