 ======Sukkot====== ======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.  ​ +Sukkot is a week-long holiday celebrated about two weeks after Rosh Hashanah.

-Etrogs cannot be bruised, broken, or have any holes in them to make them Kosher to use during Sukkot prayers. Many Etrogs also have a very delicate ball like growth on the top of the fruit called a pitom, that if it should break off during Sukkot, the Etrog is no longer Kosher. To prevent it from breaking, many choose ​to keep their Etrog in a sturdy ​box with lots of cushioning, often time with woolEtrog boxes also keep out bugs and little hands of children that could possibly damage the fruit.  ​+
