> We know that Pas Paltur, "Baker's Bread," is actually permitted year
> round. Yet, During the Aseres Yemei Teshuvah one should ensure that all
> one's bread products are strictly Pas Yisrael. But what do these terms
> mean? And why should we be stringent with this, of all halachos, and
> why specifically now? And what about Shabbos?
> Some authorities, including the Rema, maintain that Chazal'shetter
> of Pas Paltur applies in all cases, even when Pas Yisrael is readily
> available. However, many decisors, including the ShulchanAruch and
> the Shach, argue that this hetter is only applicable if one cannot
> purchase Pas Yisrael of similar type, quality or price; and stress
> that one should otherwise strive to obtain Pas Yisrael exclusively.
