    Baking challot early on Fridays – Ask the Rabbi

    Q. Why do some people get up early on Friday to bake their own challot?

    A. Getting up early to remember Shabbat and prepare the challot shows eagerness to carry out a mitzvah. Others say that having challot ready early is for the sake of a poor person who may require assistance to acquire food for the Sabbath meals.
