Q. Someone who is a Baal Teshuva and is celebrating Rosh Hashana first time. Since he has no family traditions as even his great grandparents were not religious he would like to know what to follow. He can investigate the remote sources and origins of his family and there are specialist that with some questionable degree of accuracy may do so.
Second option is that since he has joined an established shul where he is davening. Should he ask the Rabbi to instruct him as to the minhagim and traditions of the congregation and follow them?
His wife is a convert, if she wasn’t should he follow her traditions?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that he should follow the Minhagim and traditions of the congregation he has joined.
The Rov maintains that if his spouse has her own family traditions, the husband can follow them.
