May one eat spicy foods on Rosh Hashana? Or is it a custom not to?

Resposta

One may eat spicy foods on Rosh Hashana although many have the custom to avoid them, to signal that the year should be a sweet year. (See Chazon Ovadia on the High Holidays page 99, and see what the Yalkut Yosef on the High Holidays, 2014 edition, pages 269-270, says about it).
