Baking a shlissel (key) challah has long been an Ashkenazi tradition (more on that here.) But it seems they are all the rage this year —which makes sense, since everyone became a #StressBaker as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As Jews took to Twitter and Facebook to share the experience, some irresistibly funny memes have been circling around everyone’s groupchat.
Here are a few of our favorites:
- Saturday morning challah french toast? Nah, better go with lox this week.
2. Is it Shtisel challah or Shlissel challah? None of us can get it straight.
3. Some say Shlissel challah has bad PR
4. Lastly, a very Gen Z spin on what a ‘key’ looks like.
To everyone baking Shlissel challah this Shabbat, we’re rooting for you! Send us your best challah pics and funniest memes @JewishUnpacked on Instagram and Twitter!
