What is Pas Yisroel?
If a Jew is involved in any part of the baking process (e.g, he/she turns on the oven), the baked food has the status of Pas Yisroel (“Jewish bread”).
It is the custom of many communities to use only Pas Yisroel during the Aseret Yemi Teshuvah – the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
