shlissel challah

the last decade or so i started making shlissel challah as my younger sisters fought up with the ‘trend’ but the last few years i stopped . I grew up ffb and i donit recall my mother doing this growing up ( she does it now , i’m guessing it might be connected to her being an avid mishpacha , bina , ami reader ) and i certainly know my grandmothers never did this and not did my friends mothers or grandmothers do this too. so please can someone give me the sorce of this mishagasim and tell me when… Read more »

Why do we still go through this every year?

Why do we still go through this every year?

Everyone knows that: A. Shlissel Challah isn’t a Chabad Minhag B. We only do the Minhagim of Chabad C. If you are looking for Segolos the Rebbe always says that Chitas and Tzedokah etc will do and why do you run for shlissel Challah? When was the last time you said Chitas – כרמי שלי לא נטרתי why are we looking in כרמי אחרים D. The Rebbe’s Mannah we all know סגולות כלך מדרך זו. It’s printed in Igros. So why do we keep on talking about this every year….?? The only answer is that we don’t have the Rebbe… Read more »

I believe it’s not a Lubavitcher minhag

Interesting to note that the author doesn’t mention that the custom comes from AVODAH ZORAH…

Which custom is from avodah zara?

Actually…
Guest
Actually…

The minhag to bake Schlissel Challah is mentioned in Seforim, like Ta’amei Haminhagim U’Mekorei Hadininm, and Nitei Gavriel.

P.S. People claim that Kapporos stems from Avodah Zarah as well.

All prior commentaries please look at above sefer, accepted by all Yidden for the source of the minhag.

And what about...

And what about...

baking challah as segulah in groups of 40
saying Perek Shira for 40 days
etc. etc.
Why are Lubavitchers into segulohs that are not Lubavitch minhagim?

 We only do the Minhagim of Chabad #2

Good for u from Nevel.
You probably also make shiiduchim only with gezhe.

People who mock minhagim

Rema 690:17 says it is asur to mock or abolish minhagim…people did that to the minhag of making noise over Haman’s name on Purim….they were the early reformers

Rebbe Yoilish of Satmar said that all the segulos for parnasa are effective only until 9:00 AM. Then, you have to go to work.

#1 Not a mishugaas
Guest
#1 Not a mishugaas

You are right that this is not our minhog, but it is a minhog of many other yidden, with genuine sources that are *just as valid* as our own, so you have no right to call it a mishugaas. Our minhogim are not better than those of other people, they’re just ours. This urge to put down other people’s minhogim seems to come from a feeling that if it’s valid then we should adopt it, so since we don’t want to do that we must denigrate it. This is a very wrong view. Other people’s minhogim are true and valid… Read more »

#4 Vicious wicked nonsense

The claim that this has something to do with avoda zara is a wicked lie, made up by vicious people who hate chassidus and all chassidim with an unholy passion fueled directly by the Leumas Zeh. They cannot bear the thought of people following any derech that is not theirs, so they make up stories that anything they don’t do is avoda zara and assur. They have to learn that there is great diversity within yiddishkeit, we are not a monolith and never were, even in the Beis Hamidkosh times each shevet had its own minhogim and derech, and none… Read more »

To a chossid of the Rebbe, only the Rebbe’s minhogim matter. It’s not about being stuck up or gezhe. It’s called loyalty and dedication. It means that what’s not mine, is not mine and I want nothing to do with it, even if it has a legitimate and holy source.

Other people’s wives are also very nice, but they don’t belong in your house. Other people’s minhogim can be very special, but they don’t belong to us. Take pride in being a chossid of the Rebbe. You don’t have to be intolerant, just don’t go where you don’t belong.

i like that one

just be aware that the shlissel in the challa can cause issues in boirer, so practically better shape the challa in a shlissel to avoid that

Please name another minhag like this that is not ours and one of ours that other Yiddin do not do?

Shlissel Challah
Guest
Shlissel Challah

We all know the Rebbe encouraged people to keep their family minhagim even though they were not minhage Chabad. For example, those who were told to wear a striemel, or for the women to shave their hair. Some families in Chabad had the minhag from their parents and grandparents to do shlissel challah. For those who decided on their own to start this minhag of shlissel challah, my answer to the criticism is, since when is it minhag chabad to make a fire on Lag B’omer, or for the women to bite off the pittum of the esrog on Hoshana… Read more »

מנהג ישראל תורה היא
Every one follows his own minhagim
We all come from the same forefathers and mothers
So we need to be united!
These weeks of sfira we need to add in ahavas Isroel!!that means to respect others

getting into the recipe themselves- a bakery of low carb challah told me you had to eat twice as much of it ti Bentch, being that there were half non wheat flours (not hamotzi) mixed with wheat flours. A look at the recipes shows almost half non hamotzi ingredients….
