This is Page 2 - Rosh HaShana & Yom Kippur

A woman wondering about Halacha


Can I take a hot shower on Yom Tov?   
Yes one may shower with hot water


Can I cook on the 1st day of Yom for the 2nd day of Yom Tov?


Isn’t there a rule that what comes from a non-kosher animal is non-kosher?
Since a bee is non-kosher, how can honey be kosher?


What is the proper order of the brachas (blessings) & the yehi ratzon
(‘may it be your will’) that is recited when the apple is dipped in honey?


In addition to foods dipped in honey,
are there other symbolic customs for Rosh Hashana?

The next 3 represent our request of G-d to protect us from our enemies
& or our fervent prayer that our sins be nullified by their connection
to the concept of cessation.


Are there any foods that some customarily avoid during this period?



I take medicine for high blood pressure. 
If I don’t take it for even one day, my blood pressure goes up significantly.
Should I take this medicine on Yom Kippur?


Does a fever & bronchitis allow me to drink tea on Yom Kippur.  I have pain breathing which goes away when I drink tea.  I don’t think it’s endangering
my life but it will probably mean I’ll have to take an anti-biotic.


Can I swallow advil without water on Yom Kippur for severe menstrual cramps
that cause nausea & vomiting & would confine me to my bed.

Yes, you may take the pills.


I just had cataract surgery & I have to use eye drops every day because they
prevent infection. Can I use them on Yom Kippur?

You can use your drops on Yom Kippur
