I was hosting sheva brachos and baked rolls from 3 kg (6.6 pounds) of flour, but because my mixer is small, I kneaded one kilo (2.2 lbs) of dough at a time and baked each batch separately. Now I want to put all of the rolls together and separate challah with a brachah. What should I do?


If you place all of the rolls together in a large container or plastic bag, they will combine to require hafrashas challah. It’s sufficient for them to be together in the container or bag for just a moment; after that they can be separated again.

If the rolls were already packed in separate bags, according to some poskim, they should be removed from the bags and placed together in a large container or bag to require hafrashas challah. According to other opinions, they can be joined in a container or large bag even if they are packed in separate, smaller bags.
