Key_shaped_challahsWhat is Shlissel Challah?
"Shlissel or Key Challah, makes the first challah after Pesach even more special. This is a well observed custom you might want to try for yourself. You can do this by slipping a key directly in the challah, by baking it in the dough or placing it in the braids as you shape. Many even shape their challah to look like a key. Shlissel Challah is a segula, good omen, for parnassa, or livelihood. It's a very interesting custom with many sources and traditions." source: The Kosher Channel.com.
