Hallot is a rule about the distribution of bread dough on the priest.[1] According to the regulations in the Bible, there are parts that have been made as a gift to the priest.[1] Bread should be made (not purchased or made by others), at least on the day of Thursday or Friday to commemorate Shabbat.[2]

Rules on the division of the dough is only valid for the dough made of wheat, barley, spelt, and Oats.[1] dough made from Other grains are not affected by these regulations.[1] 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.[1]

At least, every family should prepare two pieces hallot before warning the Sabbath, one for the "keep", and the other as a "reminder".[3]

Currently, the distribution of bread to the rules of this priest was no longer applied.[1] Now, the bread that has been separated is then burnt,[1] as a reminder of sacrifice formerly done by Jew in Temple.[3]
