Chabad emissaries have begun an educational campaign in advance of the Sukkot holiday, and recently made an effort to teach politicians about the importance of the “four species” which are traditionally waved during the week-long holiday. According to Nfc, emissaries discussed the importance of the holiday and the command to wave the four species with Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik and Gil Pensioners MK Rafi Eitan, along with other politicians and officials.
Chabad emissaries have also constructed dozens of sukkot throughout the city of Tel Aviv. Emissaries will be present in the sukkot to help visitors wave the four species and to explain the holiday. The sukkot will also be used for “Simchat Beit HaShueva” parties.
