AIUI the Kara'im understand it to mean "to make a loud noise", so on Yom
Teruah (which they refuse to call Rosh Hashana because that's in Nissan)
they shout. Of course they're wrong about the mitzvah, but they can
probably be trusted about the word's literal meaning.
Zev Sero A prosperous and healthy 5780 to all
