Can anyone please tell ud when Challey Change It’s Name To Challah?
98% of Jews that settled in America are of Ashkenazic background having Grandparents hailing from Eastern Europe While less than 2% are from Sephardic background.So why change the name to suit the 2%.
I & many New York Jews allways called the traditional braided egg bread a Challey and so did everyone else that I grew up with in New York City Which had the largest Jewish population worldwide next to Istrael.
At what juncture was it changed to Challah,? To pronounce it Challah sound phoney and contrived.Just like Yom Kippur (Kippoor) from Yom Kippa..
Evenworse is when it is becoming spoken without the Chuff sound and called a Hallah… Both sound equally stupid and absurbed.
It wasn’t before on or around circa 1976 that Challey was sold all week.Before that only on Friday for Shabbus.
Bring back the true pronouceit”CHALLEY”and Yom Kippa.In any event enjoy the New Year.
