Sukkot

Sukkot is a week-long holiday celebrated about two weeks after Rosh Hashanah. Also known as the Feast of the Tabernacle, this holiday includes building and residing inside a temporary hut called a “sukkah”. Most people do not actively live in it but do eat their meals and sometimes even sleep in the sukkah. With Sukkot, one of the rituals is to use a Lulav and Etrog, the Four Species of palm, myrtle, willow which are bundled together to create a Lulav and a citron or Etrog, during prayers. These species represent different parts of our bodies and bring us closer to G-d. The Lulav and Etrog are incredible important when praying and in the Sukkah, and the Etrog, being very delicate is often transported from place to place in an etrog box.
