After reciting the Kiddush and washing our hands, we say the blessing over the Challah. The two loaves of challah represent the double portion of manna that God provided the Israelites on Shabbat during their wondering in the desert.

После Киддуша и омовения рук мы произносим благословение халы. Двe халы означают двойную порцию манны небесной, посланной израильтянам по субботам во время их скитаний в пустыне.


בָּרוּך אַתָּה אַדָנָי אֱלהֵינוּ מֶלֶך הָעוֹלָם הָמ וֹציא לֶחם מן הַארץ
Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech Haolam,
hamotsi lechem min haarets .

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe,
who brings out bread from the earth.
