Reminder: This week is the last week before Rosh Hashana. The last week can count for all weeks in the year.

mepal, there is something this week. There might be something else next week that you’re talking about that I don’t know of. Maybe I didn’t phrase it well, I meant that the last monday of the year is a “summary” (for lack of a better word) for all mondays, tuesdays for tuesdays… get what I’m saying?September 14, 2009 1:31 am at 1:31 am #659958
I dont know where I heard this. but it is said that on Monday you can be Mitaken everything you did wrong on all the Mondays of the year and the same for every other day of this week. I think that is what kapusta is referring to. Next week, btwn Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is Aseres Yemei Teshuvah, the 1st week of the new year.September 14, 2009 1:45 am at 1:45 am #659959
FB, I remember learning that you can be mesaken for all the wrong done specifically the week of Aseres Yimei Tshuva. Truth is, kapusta is closer to her schooling years than I am so I guess that must be it. Or maybe we’re both somewhat right!September 14, 2009 2:06 am at 2:06 am #659960
thanx, FB! Thats what I was talking about, you just did a much better job explaining it.September 14, 2009 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm #659961
kapusta- my pleasure
mepal- I’m sure you’re right as well and that there is “something” next week as well, but what I’m saying is that being that this is the LAST week of the year we are being Misaken everything from the past year. Next week is already the new year.September 14, 2009 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #659962
FunnyBunny, if I can make an observation, earlier you said mitaken (with a “t”) and now you said misaken (with an “s”)…September 14, 2009 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #659963
kapusta?!?!?!? Whatever for? So he slipped and he’s really Ashkenazic, thats all! lol.September 15, 2009 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm #659964
I’m not sure why I wrote Mitaken because mepal’s right- I am Ashkenaz. Only problem is, mepal is also wrong because I am not a “HE”!!! mepal, why’d you assume that I’m male?September 15, 2009 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #659965
she/he whatever.September 17, 2009 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #659966squeakParticipant
Tomorrow is Erev Rosh Hashana. On this day, many men observe the custom to fast (at least) half a day (i.e. until Chatzos). In my own unfortunate experience, there have been many times that I forgot about this hanhaggah until after breakfast (by which point there was no “trick” to making it to Chatzos, lol). Therefore, I felt that a reminder might be helpful to myself and to anyone else who tries to follow this minhag.September 17, 2009 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #659967mybatMember

REMINDER- it’s almost Yom Kippur. Are we prepared? The following link is an incredible speech given by Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein (orignally intended for Rosh Hashanah)- listen or watch it, it’s worth it!
