The Procedure for the Simanim on Rosh Hashanah

The Procedure for the Simanim on Rosh Hashanah
Day: Tuesday
Date: September 13, 2016
Parshat: Ki Teitzei
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 583

When doing the Simanim service, the proper way is to first say the beracha on the item, take a bite, and then say the Yehi Ratzon and eat the rest. If one has not partaken of the fruit since the previous season he should say shehehyanu as well. When saying shehehyanu the following procedure should be used. First the beracha on the fruit should be said. Immediately afterward one should say shehehyanu. Only after both berachot have been said should the fruit be enjoyed. One should make sure that the new fruit is not on the table when he says shehehyanu during kiddush or at the very least he should cover it and have in mind that the shehehyanu during kiddush should not cover the new fruit. It is proper to answer amen to the Yehi Ratzons.
