โ€œAnyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-comeโ€ (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

Does one recite a SheHecheyanu during Rosh HaShanah Kiddush?

When does one recite SheHecheyanu during the Kiddush of Rosh HaShanah?


Answer:

Similar to every other Yom Tov, Rosh HaShanah, too, has a mitzvah of simchah. Therefore, one should eat as he would regularly on Yom Tov, without hesitation from fear of the judgment of Rosh HaShanah. [1]

One should recite SheHecheyanu during Kiddush. If one forgot to recite SheHecheyanu during the nighttime Kiddush, he should recite it during Kiddush of the next day after Shacharit.[2]

On the second night of Rosh HaShanah, one should place a new fruit on the table and have it in mind when reciting SheHecheyanu in Kiddush.[See footnote 3]

See also Moreh BaEtzba ยง265; Ben Ish Chai, Netzavim 1:8; and Chazon Ovadia, Yamim Noraโ€™im, p. 16, which state that one should recite a SheHecheyanu on Kiddush on both nights, and if possible, he should have a new fruit in front of him while reciting the SheHecheyanu on the second night.

[3] This is in order to avoid choosing between the poskim, who argue whether the second night of Rosh HaShanah requires a SheHecheyanu. If one does not have a new fruit, he should nevertheless recite SheHechieyanu. See Shulchan Aruch, O.C. 600:2; Yalkut Yosef, Yamim Noraโ€™im, p. 451, 5; and Torat Ha-Moadim, Yamim Noraโ€™im, p. 73.
