Quest for Challah in the Bronx...

As today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, we thought it appropriate to highlight Daily News reporter Dorian Block's quest last week for challah bread made in the Bronx.

After trying about five different bakeries in the Bronx, as well as speaking to the faithful at Temple Emanuel in Parkchester and the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, Mr. Block was finally able to find authentic Bronx challah bread at M & M's Kosher Bakery on Johnson Avenue in Riverdale.

One thing Bronxites of any faith can mostly likely agree on is that challah bread is hella good.
