Why do some people refrain from eating nuts on Rosh Hashana?
Rabbi Moses Isserles traces this practice to the Maharil. Two reasons
are cited. First, the numerical equivalence of the letters which go into
making up the Hebrew word for "nut" (egoz) is equal to that of the
letters which go into making up the word "sin" (chet). Secondly, it
was feared that the consumption of nuts would irritate the throat,
causing extra mucus to form and would create a disturbance during
the service in the synagogue brought about by so many people attempt-
ing to clear their throats. Early writers noticed that certain nut trees
had a tendency to damage and weaken other trees that were close by.
Some lexicographers associated the Latin word for nut (nux) with a
verb meaning to damage (nocere). Even though there are a number of
Talmudic sources which use the symbol of a nut as one for good and
virtue, many chose to use it as a symbol of sin to such an extent that
some did not allow nuts to be eaten until after Hashana Raba (the last
day of the Sukot festival, which is supposed to be the end of the
judgment period).
How did the High Holy Days come to be known as "days of awe"
(Yamin noraim)?
According to Professor Elbogen, this term was not found until
medieval times . Ezra, the Scribe, in Biblical times, asked the people to
refrain from sadness on Rosh Hashana. He called for a spirit of
festivity on that day (Nehemiah 8:9-12). In the Mishnah, Rosh Hashana
is referred to as "the holiday of Rosh Hashana." The Amoraim spoke
of the fact that a Jew should feel happy and confident on Rosh
Hashana because he knows the Almighty will give him every chance.
In the period of Ganoim we find that Rosh Hashana was referred to as
a holiday of joy and that those portions of other holiday liturgies which
speak of joy, were also included in the Rosh Hashana liturgy (VEHA.
SIENU). In the 11th Century there arose a difference of opinion in
Mainz as to whether this should be so. In the 14th Century, these
passages were removed from the liturgy as a rule. It is quite possible,
and according to some most certain, that this change came about be
cause of the many persecutions suffered by Jews — especially during
the period of the Crusades. To this day, the High Holy Days remain
days of awe, and every Jew, in the course of his prayers, takes note,
in one way or another, of the tragedies of his people.
Why do many Jews go to the riverside to offer special prayers
on Rosh Hashana afternoon (Tashlich)?
The source of this custom is not clear. Some trace this to be the
scapegoat sacrifice in the Book of Leviticus and explain that the sins
of the people are passed on to the fish in the waters. Others claim
that by praying near water where there are fish, one can see man as
helpless as the fish, who are rendered tragically destitute when they
are taken out of the water. This is supposed to teach man to stay within
the confines of his faith and tradition, which is his only hope for
survival. Others see in water the sense of the continuity of life, which
glows through various stages — even evaporating sometimes into the
atmosphere and coming down again in the form of rain. The latter,
for instance, gives us faith in the doctrine of the immortality of the
soul. Others see the water as a symbol of purity, since the biblical
method of purifying man from impurity was to immerse him in water
or to sprinkle him with some liquid containing water.
