These beautiful challah covers come from the Sefwi Wiawso Jewish community in Ghana. The Hebrew word "Shabbat" is embroidered in the center. These handmade covers add a festive touch to the Shabbat table! The Sefwi Wiawso and Sefwi Sui in western Ghana is either a relatively new one, or an ancient one, depending on one’s particular evaluation of the community’s history. Members of the community believe that their ancestors, the Sefwi people, are descendants of Jews who migrated south through the Ivory Coast, bringing with them ancient Jewish observances.
(Please note that although we offer standard colors, the challah covers may not appear exactly as shown because they are individual pieces of art.)
