Q. Is it correct to add more fruits and foods in the night meal of Rosh Hashana to awaken the curiosity of the children and keep them by the meal?
A. It would seem to be that as years go by more fruits and foods are added to the Simanim list. (See question above). Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that Rosh Hashana should not be confused with the Seder Night, in which in order to comply with the mitzva of “Vehigadeta Lebinch” or telling the story of “Yetzias Mitzraim,” we need to attract the attention of the children.
The Rov recommends that one should follow the Minhagim and traditions of his family and congregation.
