Chapter 130:2
TheTen Days of Repentance

2. It is appropriate for a person to adopt a more stringent approach to his ritual conduct during the ["Ten Days of Repentance"] than he would during the rest of the year. [The reason for this is that during this time period] we are asking G-d to treat us with exceptional kindness ("chassidus" - that is, to go "beyond the letter of the law" and grant us undeserved mercy) [therefore, we should do the same regarding his commandments]. For example, a person who eats [kosher] bread baked by a Gentile baker throughout the year should be careful during these days to eat only bread baked by a Jew ("Pas Yisroel") (1).

FOOTNOTES:

(1) See Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, Chapter 38, for more details about the law of "Pas Yisroel". If a Jew ignites the oven, for example, the bread is considered "Pas Yisroel", even though a Gentile did all the baking and preparation (See Mishna Berura 603:1).
