My 10-year old daughter was helping me get ready for the upcoming holiday and offered to clean up the toy room. Later that evening she remarked to me that after cleaning it all up, the room was messy again from all the kids playing with the toys. She bemoaned the fact that she even cleaned up in the first place. I laughed, and explained to her that the same thing always happens to me, too. For example, I make delicious challah and food for Shabbos each week, and then it’s eaten all up – gone! – and I have to start all over. She smiled.

The truth is, though, each week when every last crumb of my challah is devoured (it is yummy!), it’s not really all gone. Challah may look like plain, simple bread, but in truth there is much more to it.
