Our shul follows the kabbalistic version of the order in which the simanim are eaten on Rosh Hashanah. It makes more sense halachakli too, why would you eat an apple before a date. The order is taken from Rabbi Yaakov Chaim Sofer's book Kaf Hachaim.
First, the brochot are made, haetz on the dates and haodama on the leek.
After the brochot, the order is the following:
- Silka (beets) - Sheyistalku oyveinu umastineinu.
- Karti (leeks) - Sheyikartu soneinu.
- Temarim (dates) - Sheyitamu soneinu.
- Kra (yellow squash) - Sheyikoru roa gzar dineinu, vayikoru lefoneiha zehuyoseinu.
- Rubiya (black-eyed peas) - Sheyirbu zehuyoseinu.
- Rimonim (pomegranates) - Shenarbe zehus k'rimon.
- Rosh Keves (head of sheep) - Shenihye l'rosh v'lo l'zonav.
Best looking lamb's head is in Avi Glatt. Though this year it looks kinda meh too, not full half of head.
