mod 42 says “take [your aravos] out and whack them against the chazan”
One person I respect suggested we should throw our esrogim at him.
What are your suggestions? Should someone go up, place his shtender next to the amud and go louder and faster?
I think this is a situation of “Kanoim pogin bo”.October 17, 2011 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #818579
Nothing. Stand like a mentch your in a shull. Its a house of prayer!

Bar shatya is frustrated because he lost his nechasim, and every time he reads about the nesachim in the laining he gets confused and thinks they are his.October 17, 2011 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #818583
just dont make the bimah nifgam if you throw your esrogim.October 17, 2011 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #818584YW Moderator-42Moderator
On Shabbos Chol Hamoed the minhag is to throw siddurim instead of esrogim or aravosOctober 17, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #818585
The mishna says they threw esrogim at a certain tzeduki who did the wrong nisuch hamayim. josephus mentions astory where they pelted Yannai hamelech with esrogim, who got his revenge by ordering a massacre.October 17, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #818586
I think you may be on to something. Perhaps the anshei knesses hagdolah foresaw the “toavei hashem” (e.g. the gevah lev) who would cause us to die from embarrassment of association so they placed a tefillah that we should live till the end of hallel.October 17, 2011 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #818587bptParticipant
Start a new song with the guys (or girls, depending on your shul) in the back row.

we had a chazzan go too long on Hoshana rabba one year, so my uncle (everyone has ONE uncle who does these things) gave him a ‘gezunteh shtoch’ in the rear with his lulov during Hoshanas! Wheeew, did he burn some wicked laps around the shul for the rest of the davening!! l tell ya, I’d put down any money he still feels that poke till today….LOL

daven at an earlier minyan, go to his house and eat all the food at his seuda. he’ll be sure to shave an hour off his time 2nd day YT.October 17, 2011 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #818593AinOhdMilvadoParticipant
If he’s shlepping just a bit, grin and bear it.
If he thinks he’s HaSh-m’s gift to chazzanus, and he’s really going overboard, maybe try discreetly going up to the bimah or shtender where he’s davening and putting your watch next to his machzor. Hopefully he’ll take the hint.October 17, 2011 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #818594workingMember
We are lucky enough to have the opportunity to say Hallel and Hoshanos. If it is too slow for you, stay home.October 17, 2011 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #818595yummy cupcakeMember

1- Get everyone who already finished to dance around him singing ???? ?? ??? ??? ????
2- Scream Ana Hashem Hoshiya Na
3- Take a clock off the wall and put it over his siddur. (Don’t use a watch. you won’t get it back)
4- Start krias hatorah/hoshanos without him
5- Sing ???? ??? when he finally finishes.October 17, 2011 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #818597

leave and make a breakaway minyan outside. when everyone leaves he’ll get the hintOctober 18, 2011 2:56 am at 2:56 am #818600
He might not notice if everyone left. I was once at a minyan where many of the people were sitting down or learning waiting for the toavas hashem to finish his show.October 18, 2011 2:58 am at 2:58 am #818601minyan galMember
Personally, I love Hallel – the longer the better, because at my shul that means more singing and the tunes we use are beautiful. The Chazzan could take a half hour and it would be fine with me. I love any holiday that has a full (as opposed to Hatzi) Hallel.October 18, 2011 4:29 am at 4:29 am #818602bezalelParticipant

Bar shatya, he might not notice thatg you left. However you have accomplished what you need. Which is that you will finnish early.
Who cares if the chazon realizes it or not. Unless your in for some attention.October 18, 2011 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #818604

dont go to minyanOctober 18, 2011 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #818607oyveykidsthesedaysMember
It depends how long he’s taking. If he has the chutzpah to take longer than two minutes to finish hallel, and you’re upset at that, then there are serious problems. If he’s taking twenty minutes, and you have to go to work (on Chol Shel Moed, which you’re not supposed to do anyway), then daven at a different minyan. And don’t throw esrogim at him, you might break the pitom.October 18, 2011 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #818608nitpickerParticipant
re: when they pelted the tzeduki with esrogim.
There is some historical confusion as to who exactly this was.
