Challah gift certificate/delivery in Jerusalem?

I have a relative who lives in Jerusalem. For a gift, I'd really love to find a bakery that would deliver fresh baked (delicious) challahs every week (Friday, preferably, of course) by arrangement. Or a place where I could get her a gift certificate that would cover a good period of this. I would hope to find something that wouldn't be outrageously expensive per week/challah- even if it is relatively expensive overall.

I was able to find a place where this could be done, online, but for regular delivery, it would be very, very costly to do. It doesn't seem to me that this should be such a difficult, or unheard-of, thing, and so shouldn't be sooo expensive, but we don't speak Hebrew, so I'd need to find someplace that can communicate in English. And of course, it needs to be kosher...any ideas/help?

      I don't know if Herby still lives in Beit El, but he used to be a neighbor of close friends of mine, and they would always buy his brownies, which were really tasty. (They probably bought other things, but the brownies stand out in my mind.) This goes back close to 20 years, so I can't say much about now (they no longer live there, so I haven't had his stuff in years), but I imagine they're still as good.

        He's still in Beit El, apparently. I've never had his baked goods, but after looking up his info to respond to OP, I'd like to try them.
