We use kosher gummy bear fish and cut off the heads. It’s a sure winner with the kids, too.September 7, 2010 2:22 am at 2:22 am #694782shindyMember
One year I got a piece of sheeps head. My neighbor claimed it was just from the neck…wrong! I started screaming when I saw teeth…never again. I don’t think it is a mitzvah to be grossed out on yom tov! fish head is better for me. may we all have a good gebenched year!September 7, 2010 4:23 am at 4:23 am #694783anonymrsParticipant
my mother in law told me tonight she is going to send me a fish head, because i refuse to buy one (or a sheep head, for that matter) my husband will be in charge of getting it on and off of the table, and passing it to whoever wants to partake….September 7, 2010 8:04 am at 8:04 am #694784emoticon613Member
fish head. but the funny thing is, we really do sephardi simanim; fish head is for my askenazi father. this will be the first year i’m ever having ashkenazi simanim, probably a record for an ashkenazi.
one year, we didn’t have money to buy a fish head, so we drew a cute picture of one and put it on a popsicle stick.
my sister tells me that that year my father used my brother’s head instead of the fish head. i don’t remember that though. it’s the type.September 7, 2010 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #694785mamashtakahMember

Fish head. I don’t have the nerve to stare down an animal. Yes, I know the roast I’m going to have just a few minutes afterwards had a head attached to it. But to look it straight in the eye? No, not for me.
