This Jewish bread often eaten on holidays and shabbat is almost as fun to make as it is to eat it.

    Dear Martha, traditionally Jews would not use milk or butter on Shabbat because Shabbat meals are almost always fleishig (meat), and we don't mix meat and dairy... my own recipe uses water and margarine. Just FYI.
