Kara

Represented by a pumpkin 

This siman has a double word play in hebrew. Depends on the spelling it may mean to tear/ to rend or proclaim

With this Siman we ask that our bad decrees be torn and our good merits be proclaimed(already getting ready for Yom Kippur).

P.S. pumpkin besides being beautiful and tasty with lots of options of preparation it’s very rich in vitamin A – up to 245% of the reference daily intake. Besides being full of antioxidants and carotenoids, it’s low in calories and great for the skin.

It’s good that autumn is the pumpkin  season.

P.S. Did you know that the halloween tradition to craft the Jack is quite new and  was actually born because of Sukkot and Polish Jews?

Then I think about pumpkin. The most obvious that comes to my mind is a pumpkin soup. And it hase like hundreds of variations. Most favorite is pure soup.
