Sukkot is the Jewish holiday that runs for seven days and celebrates the fall harvest. We observe by sitting and dining in hand-made shelters, or huts; shaking the lulav and etrog; and by giving thanks to G-d for the earth’s ability to provide us with food.
Fulfill the Mitzvot of Sukkot with Your Own Lulav and Etrog!
The lulav is a combination of date palm, willow and myrtle branches held together by a woven palm branch. The etrog, or citron, is a lemon-like fruit with a wonderful citrus smell. We recite a blessing over the lulav and etrog and wave them in six directions—north, south, east, west, up, and down–symbolizing that God can be found everywhere.
Order Your Personal Lulav and Etrog by Sept 5, 2018.
