Fresh & Fabulous Kosher Challahs
Scroll To Top

There are few pleasures more delicious than the pulling apart of a sweet, fluffy braided challah bread, and The Challah Fairy makes the Friday night Jewish tradition especially tasty. Made in a variety of amazing flavors and delivered fresh, their kosher, “parve” (dairy-free) and nut-free challahs are the real New York deal.

About The Food

Challah Fairy’s challahs are made the old fashioned way—by hand and with love. Nut Free, kosher-certified, and dairy-free, they come in classic flavors such as light and fluffy, slightly sweet plain or sesame, and more contemporary flavors like chocolate chip crumb and cinnamon crumb. All Challahs are shipped and delivered fresh for an experience you just can’t get from store-bought challah. And your family will flip when you make them Challah French toast! (see recipe on the product pages)

Meet The Owner

Chanalee started baking challahs in her own kitchen and delivering to friends’ mailboxes and customers in NYC in the early 1990s. After teaching Challah baking classes and catering, she opened her own full-service bakery-café in 2010 to instant success. Always one to give back to her community, each week Chanalee donates leftover challahs to a Rockland County-based organization that sends kosher packages all over the world to Jewish troops serving our country.
