WHAT IS MEANS TO BE PAS YISROEL

What it Means to Be Pas Yisroel
Davidovich Bagels are more than just Certified Kosher

Pas Yisroel or Pat Yisrael (Hebrew: "Bread of an Israelite") products are grain products, such as bagels that were cooked or baked with the participation of an "observant" Jew.  This must be, at minimum, the ignition of the flame used to prepare, cook, or bake the grain product.  In classical Rabbinical Judaism, this requirement is considered restricted to five classical grains of Judaism-these are wheat, barley, oats, spelt, and rye.  In modern food production, commercial bakeries may accomplish a status of Pas Yisroel by using something called the "Shain System", named for it's inventor Rabbi Yehuda Shain, whereby an apparatus can be ignited remotely by an observant Jew.   For more information on this and other Bakery Historical Facts visit www.allnp.com
