Blessing of the Challah Tradition

The blessing of the Challah bread is a serious and intimate portion of the Jewish wedding reception before the rest of the party gets underway. Usually, an elder in the family or a rabbi say or sing a prayer blessing the bread, and then cuts it and takes a bite. The bread is then taken and cut into pieces so that each table can partake.
