Hallot is a rule about the distribution of bread dough on the priest. According to the regulations in the Bible, there are parts that have been made as a gift to the priest. Bread should be made (not purchased or made by others), at least on the day of Thursday or Friday to commemorate Shabbat.
Rules on the division of the dough is only valid for the dough made of wheat, barley, spelt, and Oats. dough made from Other grains are not affected by these regulations. size of the dough to be given by a baker at the Imam is 1 / 48 part, while the size of the housewife is 1 / 24 part.
At least, every family should prepare two pieces hallot before warning the Sabbath, one for the "keep", and the other as a "reminder".
Currently, the distribution of bread to the rules of this priest was no longer applied. Now, the bread that has been separated is then burnt, as a reminder of sacrifice formerly done by Jew in Temple.
