Good Morning Rabbi,

I was just wanting to know the meaning of Hoshiana? And the difference between Hosanna and Hoshiana?

Thank you

  1. I am not quite sure that I know exactly to what you refer. The word Hoshanah means “Save”. Hoshia-Na means “Save now.” If that is not what you were asking, please write back and let us know and we will try to answer your exact question.
