Arutz Sheva Opens Lulav & Etrog Site

Arutz Sheva has opened its online Lulav & Etrog store to enable the general public outside of Israel to purchase complete sets of the "Four Species" used on the Sukkot holiday. Each morning of the 7-day Sukkot holiday (excluding the Sabbath), Jews will wave the Four Species – 1) A palm branch, 2) an etrog citrus fruit, 3) three myrtle branches and 4) two willow branches – as part of the morning prayer service.
 
There are clear Jewish legal guidelines for size and appearance of each of the 4 species which render some specimens unfit for usage, and others a premium. All specimens in the Arutz Sheva Four Species store are inspected and fit for holiday usage. They are categorized into 4 differently-priced sets.
