Keen observers already are aware that Grand Bakery’s kosher challah is back on some store shelves, and now new owner Sam Tobis is gearing up for the High Holy Days. Starting Thursday, Sept. 14, customers can special-order round challahs and honey cakes for their Rosh Hashanah meals.

Rather than picking up their items at the bakery’s old location on Oakland’s Grand Avenue, though, they’ll have to head to the Food Mill, located between the Laurel and Dimond districts.

“We’re back in 15 grocery stores and are delivering, and are excited to be back in action,” said Tobis.

Originally from Manhattan, Tobis, 27, came to the Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley and stayed on (his family has since relocated here, too, and they all live in Oakland). He was working in education before he decided to switch gears.
