What are the criterion for a practice to become a minhag? Just because we do something over and over does that make it a minhag? Changing a minhag can be difficult but how does one actually get started in the first place?

  • Are you referring to individuals or a communal minhag? – Shoel U'Meishiv Apr 20 '18 at 12:08
  • Not sure it matters. Trying to understand when something becomes a minhag. If an individual or communty do the same thing over and over is it by default a minhag? – TheRiver Apr 20 '18 at 16:17
