The Simanim on Rosh Hashana

The Simanim on Rosh Hashana
Day: Sunday
Date: September 13, 2015
Parshat: Vayelech
Yalkut Yosef: O"H 583

The proper time to eat the Rosh Hashana Simanim is either just after hamotzi at the beginning of the meal, 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 Eretz Yisrael and also since they precede pomegranates in the order of the species . When saying the ha'etz one should have in mind that it is also for any other Simanim with the same beracha.
