I am interested in all customs where the 4 minim are held in the direction that they grew - not with anything pointing down.

comment Apple on Rosh HaShanah
@DoubleAA Another thought. Why is there a custom (for some) to eat the apple in honey first when there are several other simanim which are from eretz yisroel that qualify for a brocho first?

comment Nebulizer on Yom Kippur
I am inclined to think that if the nebulizer were a problem, it might be equally forbidden to deliberately stand in an area of natural high humidity - which bearing in mind the recent weather where I live could be a real problem.

comment What's so moving about Kol Nidrei
The bit relevant to the conversos is this: "By the authority of the Court on High and by authority of the court down here, by the permission of One Who Is Everywhere and by the permission of this congregation, we hold it lawful to pray with sinners," and not the Kol Nidrei text.
