One of the bonuses of living in an intensive Jewish neighbor­hood is the presence not only of a kosher bakery but of a Sabbath observant (shomer Shabbat) one as well. This means the owners are personally observant of halacha. Accordingly, they close the bakery before sundown Friday and don't reopen until early Sunday morning. There is never any worry whether or not challah was taken or whether Sunday morning's bread or Monday morn­ing's cookies were baked by another Jew on Shabbat (which would not be permitted).
