The Simanim on Rosh Hashana Night

The Simanim on Rosh Hashana Night
Day: Monday
Date: September 8, 2014
Parshat: Ki Tavo
Yalkut Yosef: 583

The proper time to eat the Simanim is either at the beginning of the meal after hamotzi, or at the end of the meal after birkat hamazon. When doing the Simanim during the meal, no blessing is said on any cooked vegetables since cooked vegetables are routinely eaten as part of a meal. One of the Simanim is dates. The beracha should be said on dates first since dates are part of the seven species of Erez Yisrael and also since in the order of the species they precede pomegranates. When saying the ha'etz one should have in mind that it is also for any other Simanim with the same beracha.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
