Recent comments to "Hoshana Rabbah – Doing It Right"

lovely, but why do we beat the bundle? to symbolize shedding of sins? (loosely alluded to)and with all this, did you come up with a reason for a ‘gutten kvittel’? eagerly awaiting your reply after your yomtov

as you said beating the bundle sheds the ‘dinim’ which I presume are the negative judgments becuase of the sins.
A gutten kvittel is spoken about, but I don’t have anything satisfactory for you.

Well written and comprehensive. Regarding the “gutten kvittel/ piska tova” we say, I thought it wishing the din-finale’ of Hoshana Rabba should be good(?)
on that note, a gutten kvittel!

but why a kvittel?

Hoshana Rabba the malachim pass out the kvitlach from the bais din shel maala
