it is not our minhag

החלות והמצות

אין נוהגין כמנהג קהלי חסידים רבים שבשבת זו מנקבין את החלות במפתח, וגם אין נוהגין באכילת מצות מסויימות וכד’ (“געלע מצות”).

ואכמ”ל.

ראה בס’ מנהג-ישראל-תורה (עמ’ שלו-שלח), נטעי-גבריאל (ג, עמ’ קסט), קובץ תפארת-ישראל, ח (עמ’ 21).

Re: Shlissel Challah

I don’t remember in which sefer I read this… but somewhere it states to take the key, poke it into the dough as if you are actually placing a key into a key hole, and turn it as if you are opening a locked door. This may be an indication that we are asking Hashem to open the opportunities and possibilities to our prosperity and parnosoh.

We have reached our goal (and passed it by a few, for insurance)
thank you for all those that participated, and please everyone can have this couple in mind, even without the baking. The wife is nearing 38, and contemplating giving up mikvah (“It’s not working anyway”)

Careful What You Bite

I learned from experience:
Putting key into challah is a segulah for a broken tooth (and an expensive visit to the dentist).

To # 1: IT IS A CHABAD LUBAVITCH MINHAG TO PUT A KEY IN THE CHALLAH THIS SHABBOS! To #3 YES THIS IS A LUBAVITCH MINHAG. To #10: I’m not sure what “Post gimmel tamuz IDEAS” have to do with anything that is said here. I think that you should talk to your Mashpia and strengthen your Hiskashrus a bit! To #15: Please learn how to spell and then voice your opinion. To 16: Jewish is with a Kapital J! think about that! To 17: I see you are a very expirienced person. Therefore, dont worry about your dentist bills,… Read more »

Chabadnikim do this minhag

I live in Kfar Chabad. Lived here for 6 years now. Everyone does this minhag here in one form or another – along with shluchim all over the world. Some make a challah shaped like a key. Some add an actual key to the top of the challah. But it is most definitely done by Chabad. Besides all that, why would anyone not want make a cute key shaped challah? If you make a key challah one year, that doesn’t mean you’re stuck doing it forever. Picking and choosing things that speak to you and help you isn’t a terrible… Read more »

Not minhag?

It’s also not minhag for most the men in CH to shower before mikveh. Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it…or at least think about doing it.
Cmon sheeple. You can’t be scared to see what the Jewish world has to offer aside from chabad. That’s what makes one ignorant.
