Editor's Note: This post has been edited from its original version.

Rosh Hashanah , the Jewish New Year, begins this Sunday, and with that comes the search for good challah. Despite its popularity among the Jewish and not-so-Jewish communities, the braided egg bread (traditionally made round for the New Year) isn't something you're going to find at just any bakery, which is why we've put together a list of seven places to get challah in Metro Phoenix.


This Jewish deli has several locations open seven days a week, making it pretty easy to get your hands on challah. You can also place orders ahead of time with their catering department but you need to spend at least $50, which is a lot of dough. For hours, locations or to place an order, visit Chompie's online.
