Ghosts of Rosh Hashana Past

Rosh Hashana: Make it a one day holiday
Let's make it a one day holiday. You know, like the Torah says.

Seasonal pet peeves
Among them: The Rosh Hashana Recess. The refreshment break before musaf on Rosh Hashana should be abolished.

Davening Dilemma
All I really want for the High Holidays is a superbly-talented chazzan, in a magnificent room, leading a congregation of hundreds in prayer and song. And I want to be done by 1:30 pm.

Very familiar (almost)
In Tannaic times the chazan at the Nasi's minyan changed the nusach. What happened isn't what you'd expect.

A homily on teshuva
R. Eleazar b. Dordia visits a hooker and learns an important lesson about repentance.

The Purple Matzo Ball.
Does the New York TImes really think that this obcenity is an appropriate dumpling for Rosh Hashana?

Slichos make me sleepy
The new custom is to say Slichos at 10:30 PM. Traditionalists, of course, despise this. Not.

What I look for in a chazaan
My list.

Pro Piyutim
I think it's amusing that the frum thing to do nowadays is to complain about the High Holiday piyutim. This is because Orthodox Jews no longer appreciate words.

Camgirls, bei denen jeder Lustschrei absolut wirklich
und heiß ist. Es gibt sogenannte Cougar-Parties für
reife damen und junge Herren, Black and White-Parties, für Girls mit
Lust auf schwarze Herren und vice versa. Genau alles ist es, was
ebenso die Frauen am Telefon abgehen lässt.
