==Having two loaves of Challah==
# For the [[Shabbat]] meals one should have Lechem Mishna meaning that one needs to make Hamotzei over two loaves of bread on [[Shabbat]] and [[Yom Tov]] in commemoration of the double portion of Man that fell before [[Shabbat]] and [[Yom Tov]]. <ref> S”A 274:1, Mishna Brurah 274:1. The poskim have a debate of whether this obligation is from the torah or the rabbis. The Taz OC 678:2, Chatam Sofer OC no. 46, and Aruch Hashulchan 274:1 all say it is from the torah while the Magen Avraham 254:23 says that it is only rabbinic. </ref>
# Women are also obligated in Lechem Mishneh. <Ref>Meiri Shabbat 118a writes that women are obligated in Lechem Mishneh just as they are obligated in other mitzvot of Shabbat such as the meals of Shabbat, Kiddish, and Havdalah. Mishna Brurah 274:1 rules that women are obligated in Lechem Mishneh based on the reasoning that they too enjoyed from the miracle of the manna. Biur Halacha 291 "nashim", Chazon Ovadyah ([[Shabbat]] vol 2, pg 172), and Aruch Hashulchan 274:4 agree. Shemirat [[Shabbat]] kihilchita 55:3 says that although this is the accepted opinion, Rav Shlomo Kluger in Haelef licha shlomo 114 writes that women don't have the custom to eat lechem mishne because it is a mitzva on the sanctity of shabbat which is a mitzvat aseh shehazman grama, and is not included in the source for their obligation in kiddush[[Kiddush]]. </ref>Some say that the women should hear the Bracha from the one making HaMotzei on the two loaves, while others defend the minhag of those who don’t hear the HaMotzei and make HaMotzei on the piece given to them. <Ref> Sh”t Kinyan Torah 1:88 and Eshel Avraham (siman 274) defend the minhag, while Sh”t Bear Moshe quotes the Chatom Sofer who was insistent on having the women hear the Bracha of HaMotzei from the one making it over two loaves. Chazon Ovadyah ([[Shabbat]] vol 2, pg 172) writes that the one making Hamotzei should wait for everyone to sit in order to fulfill Lechem Mishna.</ref>
