    Does anyone know the reason why we eat stuffed cabbage on Simchas Torah?


    I have heard that since we lein vzos haberacha and the hebrew word for cabbage כּרוב which has the same osiyos as בּרוך.


    Because all the other great food with a heimeshe taam had already been committed to other yom tovim and the gadolim turned thumbs down on sushi.

    To celebrate the kiyam of the Torah having sodos in it as the cabbage has the meat hidden in it.

    Just don’t say it’s a halacha


    We didn’t have stuffed cabbage. Come to think of it, we didn’t last year, either.

    Someone asked me why we jump up by Moshe emes

    I said maybe because kitsch is in the ground saying it



    Simchas Torah we finish reading the torah and we roll it back.
    So we eat food which are rolled up.

    If you make large stuffed cabbage rolls and small stuffed cabbage rolls and serve one of each side by side it looks like a Torah scroll at the end/beginning of the cycle.


    A cabbage is round, signifying the annual cycle of the torah readings culminating in simchas torah. When I was back in school, one of our rebbeim would frequently challenge the class to come up with “creative” inyanim as to explain some really arcane minhagim. It was actually fun and you would have been amazed at some of the rationales offered (e.g. cooked cabbage has a smell like that of the schach and décor of a very wet succah by the last of a rainy scuccos).


    GH: one of the reasons I saw is that on there is a minhag to eat stuffed cabbage on Hoshana Rabbah because be say KOL MEVASER MEVASER V’OMER. Kohl is german for cabbage and we then cook it in water (play on the words to say in yiddish kohl mit vasser)

    Kitsch should be korach instead


    Because it’s rolled like the torah
