High Holidays 5784 / 2023: Order Lulav & Etrog

The Torah instructs us to take up four species in hand to celebrate Sukkot. "On the first day you shall take the product of the goodly trees, branches of palm trees, boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days." [Leviticus 23:40] The first three (willow, palm, and myrtle) are bound together and collectively called a lulav. The fourth is the etrog (citron), a sweetly scented citrus fruit grown in Israel. The four species symbolize the agricultural abundance of and God's role in nourishing Israel and the Jewish people.

Together, the four species are shaken in six directions during Hallel, signifying that God is found everywhere. It is considered a mitzvah to shake the lulav and etrog during the holiday of Sukkot. 

Orders must be submitted on or before Tuesday, September 12th.
