This unique Challah Board was handcrafted in Annapolis, MD, from quality wood, a mix of Maple, Cherry, and Mahogany. The Hebrew words of Hamotzi (The blessing for the bread) are engraved on the board. In order to preserve the quality and beauty of the wood, it is finished with mineral oil and Candelilla Wax.
This Challah board is an excellent gift for weddings, Jewish holidays, anniversaries, housewarmings, or any occasion.
Due to the nature of the wood, each board is unique and may have slight variations in color and grain from what is shown in the picture.
The size of the board is approximately 15.5” x 10” x 0.75”.
To clean the Challah board, wash it by hand with liquid soap, wipe it with a dry cloth and let it air-dry on its side. Periodically, recondition the board with mineral oil or cutting board oil. Do not submerge the board in water for a long time or place it in a dishwasher. Doing so will damage the board.
