By Noah

My object is a knife and it is from America. It is used for cutting challah which is a special bread eaten by Jews on shabbat. My dad uses it to cut challah and once a year matzah during Passover. The knife shows you that I am Jewish because it is used on these special Jewish holidays. Only my dad uses the knife because he says the prayers. 
I chose the knife because we only use it on Friday nights so it is important. This knife my mom got as a wedding gift. The knife is light and the knife is sharp. It is kept in a white cloth inside of a draw in my living room. My question to my parents is why do we only use this knife to cut the challah and not other things? And why is Passover always on a different day?
