    The Shlisel Challah

    As far as I know this is not a Minhag Chabad.
    Growing up in a Chabad home with all Chabad neighbors I never heard of it until about the late 70’s from a friend of mine who came from a different home in Williamsburg and got married to a Chabad man.
    I was told by a Rov from Chabad “Mir hoben eigene Minhogim vos darfun mir unnemen andere”.

    The Heavenly locks have gone digital and now use NFC cards to open the locks. From now on please use a square matzoh to symbolize the schlissel. Indeed, Yidden of old knew that one day the locks would resemble matzohs and so chose the Shabbos after pesach (when we use exclusively matzoh) as the week to bake shchlissel challah.

    there is a minhag each year to point out that this shlissel challa is not a chabad minhag 🙂

    Rebbe used Shmerling chocolate, but minhag Chabad based on what chassidim do is not to use ANY products. Go figure.

    Every year col post an article post pesach about shlissel challa. And every year someone who is more righteous than thou had to comment that it’s not minhag chabad.
    Any segula for parnassa I’ll take.

    אין זה מנהגנו, doesn’t mean “don’t do it” (unless it says מנהגנו, שלא…), there is nothing wrong with doing it, and it is actually a beautiful minhag…
    There is no mitzva – and it definitely not a chassidishe thing to – cool off others’ enthusiasm for Jewish things!

    By Chassidei Chabad it’s Mekubal: If we didn’t hear it from our Rebbe we don’t do it. End of story.

    Mrs. Bistritzki would bake shlisel challa every year and send to the Rebbe and Rebitzen, enough of a makor for me.

    Which is why he is not quoted by our Rebbeim. The Rehbe said this on Shavuos תשי”ג or י”ז.

    Why do his minhag when our Rebbeim won’t talk about him?

    Something to think about.
    As Lubavitchers, our Rebbe’s words come before all.

    Ask around. You’ll find out that this custom was around in Lubavitch for generations.
