The lulav and etrog (four species) is one of the most beautiful ways in which to celebrate Sukkot, our Fall harvest holiday. It is a mitzvah to shake your own lulav and etrog on Sukkot. Most years we facilitate that by communally owning a few sets, which anyone can use at the synagogue. This year, as we did last year, due to concerns about COVID-19 and our requirement to avoid sharing ritual objects, we are asking that people make sure to buy their own sets.
Even if you haven’t done so in the past, take this opportunity to buy your own set this year and explore the meaning and spiritual uplift of this mitzvah.
We are again working together with local synagogues to bring you an affordable opportunity to participate in this mitzvah. All orders and payments may be placed HERE! Pick up for members of Ohav Shalom will be at Ohav on Sept. 19 between 10am-noon.
