"A soft golden loaf - perfect coiled into a round loaf, especially for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. The three strands symbolize truth, peace and beauty and the spiral coil indicates the ascent to God. Garnishing the loaves with seeds, such as poppy or sesame seeds symbolize the falling of manna from heaven. The cloth covering of the challah with a cloth as it is served at the Sabbath meal represents the heavenly dew that protects the manna.
