How to make hallah: Let these three year olds show you

Plaiting in actionHere is a 5 minute film on the fun of making hallah for Shabbat on a Friday morning at Apples and Honey Nursery. Hope you enjoy it.

And to download a free copy of “The Little Book of Hallah”, click here for the pdf (prints on A4 paper – select “booklet” printing option).

The booklet has recipes, advice and top tips on making hallah with (or without) young children  and has a basic dough recipe as well as festival hallot.


The film and booklet were prepared for a hallah making workshop run by Liz Ison as part of an early years training day at Finchley Reform Synagogue in November. We turned out three varieties of hallot – apple hallah, Biblical hallah made with the seven Biblical species and mini-choc-chip hallot. We shared the finished loaves with the rest of the delegates at lunch time.
