We usually do it on R"H as we have water near our house. When I was younger my family usually ended up doing it on Hoshana Rabba Wink

TM about something interesting you eat on Rosh Hashana

In the week before Yom Tov. I don't cook on Yom Tov b/c want to be free to daven, take care of our children, etc.

Tell me about do you hear Shofar in shul or does your dh watch your children and you go to hear Shofar at a later time especially designated for women who can't hear in shul?

My kids are all old enough to go to shul. I used to stand outside shul when they were younger as I preferred not to have to go at a later time. One year I had a very young baby and my husband got the Baal Tokea to blow for me.

Tell me about your favorite part of davening on Rosh Hashana?

Sadly, I haven't been to shul on Rosh Hashanah the last few years due to physical medical limitations, so I don't remember the davening very well. I can still recapture the trembling I felt when the Chazzan recited "HAMELECH!" and also by Shofar blowing. The fear, trembling, tears flowing, and kedusha feeling rising by "Venesanah Tokef Kedushas HaYom," and how the that feeling increased as we segued into "B'Rosh Hashanah Yikoseivu, uveYom Tzom Kippur Yechoseimu..." I would dwell on each part, Mi....uMi...., and beseech Hashem for the good parts for me, my family and all Klal Yisrael.
And then the TREMENDOUS relief when the Chazzan pronounced, "Teshuva, uTefillah, uTzadakkah Mavirim......!!!"

Tell me about if your husband finishes davening on Rosh Hashanah not long before the shkiyah, how you manage the seudas? And how/when do you feed your children? And yourself?

Our shul finishes about 1:30, last year because of corona they split into more Minyanim so my husband davened Neitz so we finished much earlier. So we don't have that issue.
But if I did, I would make Kiddush and feed my kids and eat some decent food myself. Then when my husband comes home we would wash and have a quick Seuda. But definitely wouldn't wait all day to eat. It's not a fast day.

Tell me about how you keep your young children busy on Rosh Hashana?

We rarely eat in a restaurant and haven't done so in years, so can't describe a favorite.

Tell me about family weddings.

They can be very fraught with tension if you don't have a good relationship. But in the end I hope they are a place where family can gather and just love on each other and welcome a. New addition

Tell me about a favorite school Rosh Hashanah project.

My daughters' school: from appr. Kitah Hei, the teacher teaches the girls how to daven in shul on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur - what parts only the chazzan recites, what parts chazzan and congregants?
When to stand? What don't have to say. When to answer "Amen." or, what to answer, etc. They make their own Machzor with the parts that they daven in shul, and write the instructions near the parts of tefillah.
I also learned some things that I didn't know from these Machzorim.

Tell me about what inspires you the most about Rosh HaShanah?

The idea that Hashem in his majesty rules over the entire universe, and at the same time cares about each one of his creatures, and cares about every single thing we do.

Tell me how I can get into the mode of preparing for Yom Tov when I am beside myself with worry over my mother's health, and so busy with her recent crisis.

Tof Umachol dearest, I feel that you yourself answered your painful question with what you wrote (see above) in your beautiful, profound response to my, "Tell me about what inspires you most about Rosh Hashanah?"
I'm writing part of your quote '...Hashem Cares about each one of His creatures...,' which I will gently change to - Hashem Cares about each one of His children - one of His precious children whom Hashem Cares about dearly is your dear mother, may she have a Refuah Sheleimah bimheirah Min HaShamayim and be blessed with many, many more years of joy in the best of health. Another of His precious children is you! I know, it's very hard not to worry about a loved one's health, my own dearest mother my she be well, be"H, lives in a different country than where I live, and it's very difficult from afar.
My sincere apologies if what I'm about to write may sound uncaring, I truly, sincerely, don't mean it in that manner - Hashem Wants you also to be healthy and well, and it won't help your dear mother if you get sick chas v'Shalom, from worrying so much. I'm sure that you're doing the best that you can to help your mother.
I also feel, imho, that the loss of your father which is searing pain inside you and very understandably so, is subconsciously increasing your worry over lhbd"l your dear mother's health.
Again, imho, but I've also experienced that terrifying feeling after my dear father was niftar.
One can only do their best physically, and spiritually - tefillos are very powerful and good deeds.
I very much hope that you take my words in the caring and loving manner that I mean them to be.

Tell me about something meaningful that you did for or during the last Shabbos of the year.

Simcha4, I am very moved and inspired by your words. Thank you for your sensitivity, your empathy, understanding, kindness and emunah. You always know what to say to touch my heart and make me feel supported and hopeful. May you and your family have a wonderful year, with health, happiness and closeness to Hashem.

Now for my response - we spent the last Shabbos of the year with my mother, caring for her and trying with all our might to help her experience some Oneg Shabbos. I hope we succeeded. It's hard to tell.

Tell me about connecting with someone you haven't seen in a long time - perhaps to wish them a Shana Tova, or vice versa.

Sorry, I must not have phrased it clearly. I was probably too tired at the time. What I meant was, tell me about reaching out to someone whom you haven't been in touch with for a while, or about someone who reached out to you after not being in touch for some time.

Simcha4, I just want to add that you always strike me as a person with amazing middos. Your kindness, sensitivity and emunah are so inspiring! G'mar chasimah tovah.
