I have seen in many Shuls on Hoshana Raba after using the Hoshanos people throw the used Hoshanos on top of the Aron Kodesh. What is the reason and source for this Minhag?
On Hoshana Rabba after one uses (Klaps) his Hoshanos may another person use the same Hoshanos?
Is hitting the Hoshanos on the ground a universal practice? And what is the source for this custom?
Why do we stay up all night on Hoshanah Rabbah, and what is its source?
I recently read that it's a Segulah (others put it as a minhag) for a pregnant woman to bite off the Pitum of the esrog on Hoshana Rabbah for an easy labor. (please correct me if I misunderstood it) ...
