Challah covers made in the UAE

Updated: Jun 10, 2020

Recently, I expressed the idea of creating a unique challah cover to a very dear Emirati friend. I wanted to produce something that would reflect the UAE, I mused. Something that visitors could take back home and fondly remember their beautiful experiences in the UAE. A few weeks later, my wonderful friend called me to say she had a gift for me. She delivered it to me on the first night of Channukah. The challah cover pictured above is what she gave me.

I was blown away.

She had arranged for her tailor to embroider the Hebrew lettering. She used traditional Sadu fabric to create ribbons and she designed this beautiful challah cover. As you can see, it is a real gem! I have proudly used this challah cover on my Shabbat table and it is a special manifestation of a precious friendship.

Since then, I have made a whole lot more which are now available to the public. I have gifted to many dear friends and you can do the same.

Order your challah cover from me and adorn your Shabbat table with a special memento from Dubai.

International shipping is also possible. Order even if you are not in Dubai!!
