The Big Bang -Part 2


                   THE BIG BANG

Poskim have never considered 
banging on the Bimah without any
announcement to remind the
Mispallelim not to forget
טל ומטר- יעלה ויבא etc. as an option.

(The way done in most Shuls today)


The Mishna  (Rosh Hashana 2:7) says, According
to the תנא קמא, Bais Din announced "מקודש" thereby
confirming that day as Rosh Chodesh regardless if it
was on the first day or the second day.

Chazal insisted on the הכרזה (announcement) even
when Rosh Chodesh is on the second day which
happens automatically.  (if the new moon wasn't seen
on the first day) We still must declare מקודש to confirm
the day as Rosh Chodesh.

We replicate the הכרזה of Rosh Chodesh by announcing
the time of the מולד at Rosh Chodesh Bentching.
There is a side benefit of knowing the timing of
Kiddush Levana.

When Bentching גשם/טל we also make
a הכרזה which declares officially the new season
for the Nusach in Shmoneh Esrai.

The same* תקנה applies to make a הכרזה announcing
the start of saying טל ומטר / ברכה and יעלה ויבא.
This also reminds us to say it but the reason we
announce it is for the sake of doing a הכרזה.

Banging on the Bimah without announcing
anything will not suffice because we need a הכרזה.
Chazal never instituted reminders for the
Shmoneh Esrai.

Over the years this has been forgotten and they
dropped the (עיקר (הכרזה and kept the
טפל (reminder)

In German Ashkenaz Shuls where they have been
 keeping most of their Minhagim for the past
1200/1500 years and follow the Mahril who writes to
announce the first night of R. Ch. יעלה ויבא and on the
second night to announce "Rosh Chodesh"
There are no reminders or announcements for
Shachris & Mincha because הכרזה is only for the
first Tefillah. 

*There are no Piyutim like by Geshem/Tal Bentching since it's done
in the weekday and in the evening
