    Great video! I always do the six braid. I'll have to try the other ones. Happy challah baking.

    Thanks! Fantastic video! I have been baking challahs for Rosh Hashana for over 30 years and I learned something new from this video; I will be now braiding them a new way. The 6 braid way was a great new idea for me. Loved how the video was presented, clear and easy directions with soft music in the background. WELL DONE! Keep bringing us more of these terrific videos.

    I'd like to learn to braid with 6. This video is inspiring for me to try different methods of braiding. Thanks for posting :)

      Ellie - a six braid round or a regular 6 braid?

    I braid with 6 on a long Challah but. Never knew how to do it on a round Challah. Thank you so much... :-)
