In Talmudic times the practice was to dip bread in salt to give it some flavor.
Jewish law states that for "clean bread" (and ours surely qualifies) this is not required.
(Many are particular to do this on Shabbat.) The reason for this custom is because the table that we eat on is compared to the Altar that once stood in the Holy Temple. Just as all offerings on the Altar were salted, the bread that we eat is salted, too.Also we place salt on the bread because salt is a preserver, symbolizing that this meal is no longer merely a transitory experience, but a moment that will last for eternity.Further, Genesis says that we should eat our bread with the sweat of our brow (sweat contains salt).e Harmony launched in Australia in 2007 and has since been responsible for over 11,000 marriages, as well as thousands of relationships, babies, and countless dates and first kisses.Millions of Australians have turned to e Harmony to find better quality, more compatible matches – making us the country’s most trusted dating site.
