Hamotzi on Shabbat


Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

Nisan 5, 5769
Why do the two Challahs on Shabbat need to be uncut before the blessing is said?
The Talmud learns from the double Friday Manna portion the need for two loafs of bread on Shabbat. The reason they should be whole before the Bracha is in honour of the Bracha and in honour of shabbat. [Divrei Yatziv OC 126]
