    You might be able to find a round challah at Noe Valley Bakery on 24th Street or at Whole Foods.

    Shana tova!

        Acme had them yesterday in Berkeley. They called it a turban challah. They sell challah on Fridays and Saturdays.

          So I take it this is not a controlled substance we are talking about. It is some kind of bread?

                I know it's too late, but for future emergencies - I got some great round challah (Grand something brand) at Mollie Stone's in Sausalito. They usually carry the same brand of regular braided challah. Very yummy - not too eggy!
