Fair use rationale for Image:Hoshana Raba 2006 300x224.jpg

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Hoshana Raba 2006 300x224.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this resource article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Resource: Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with resource policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Hebrew (actually Aramaic) not appearing correctly

The words " " are appearing in my browser in reverse order, probably because there is a line break in between. I don't know how to fix this.

What does "chabit, chabit velo Barich" mean?

I noticed the article mentions about the age-old arabic phrase that is recited.. but what exactly does this mean, or translate to? --Preceding unsigned comment added by Mosheb (talk o contribs) 18:04, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Remove image

I propose to remove the image "Beating of the willows at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies", because it is unclear. Just some willow branches will do imho. Debresser (talk) 20:28, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

A picture of willow branches is needed in the article, but for readers who don't know how they beat them, the Ziegler picture is a pretty good example. Yoninah (talk) 23:22, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Why the article is flagged

I'm an ex-orthodox Jewish person who actually got to this article because I like sociology of religion, and was investigating german/swiss Anabaptist groups for fun (such as the Moravian Church). Thanks to my background, I actually do understand what is going on in this article - however, if I were coming from an American Moravian Church, I would have no idea what this article is talking about, because it is so specific in its sense of customary behavior. Furthermore, if I were coming from a Moravian Church, it is way more likely that I would have witnessed a Reform or Conservative congregation doing Hoshannot (or even a non-aligned congregation who is affiliated with Jewish Renewal congregation. None of this article covers non-orthodox POV of customary behavior in non-Orthodox congreagtions, so I would bet I would be ever more confused after reading this article and then showing up to a reform congregation Hoshannot, because resource didn't tell me what would happen AT ALL.

Finally, this article is written in this really odd way which makes it sound like a Teimani congregation speaks Yiddish, instead of Judeo-Arabic. Customs should be broken apart by relative geographic origination (Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Eidot Mizrach) and then by country/other (Syrian, Turkey, Spanish-Portuguese, Hasidic, Mitnagi, Yekkish, whathaveyou) and properly sourced! alongside contemporary movement/nonmovement details (orthodox, ultra-orthodox, conservative, reform, reconstructionist, humanist, Jewish renewal, so that if our theoretical Moravian friend mysterious shows up in a Jewish Renewal and Reform aligned but technically not affiliated Spanish Portuguese Synagogue in Savannah for Hoshannah Rabbah (less theoretically weird than it sounds, the only continually "orthodox" Spanish Portuguese shul in the US is Shearith Israel, and that is because they are the founding member of the OU, the others are non-aligned but psuedo reform), s/he will understand what's happening.

Aka, feel very bad for our "fake" Moravian resource reader, and assume someone like him/her is the vast majority of readers, not the minority of jewish people who appear to have contributed something to this page -- Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:42, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a how-to guide. Debresser (talk) 20:04, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Pithy, but doesn't resolve the reality that this article is much more likely than not to be read by someone who has no idea what hoshannah rabbah is, because of beyond little knowledge of Jewish people and Judaism, and who could potentially walk away thinking that Yemenites Jewish people speak Yiddish while actually having little information about how contemporary Jewish people s/he actually knows celebrates/or doesn't celebrate Hoshannah Rabbah. In That sense, the article both fails as a summar of customs and a summary of what the holiday is, how it came about, and why it is celebrated (or not) Shanac (talk) 04:06, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
See next talk section, #One source is strictly Orthodox. Please {{Ping}} me to discuss. --Thnidu (talk) 17:44, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

One source is strictly Orthodox

The source for two references is Halachipedia. Halacha is the collective body of Jewish law. As the rest of the site's name suggests, it uses resource code. That may or may not make it unreliable, since it appears to be more closely supervised and checked than Wikipedia. But its content is strictly limited to Orthodox Judaism:

In general, the site is meant to cater to Orthodox Jews of all types and minhagim [customs]. Therefore, irrelevant of my background, I'm happy to include as many Orthodox opinions as possible. However, as the site is growing and isn't finished it's very possible that a particular opinion on a particular subject was missed.

One can always add additional sources as needed. Debresser (talk) 19:08, 21 October 2019 (UTC)
