|Etrogim on display on Emek Refaim Street in Jerusalem|
Today's video gives you a good idea of what it's like to shop in Jerusalem's Four Species Market, which is open for only a few days before Sukkot. It highlights the features of a perfect etrog, and explains that one of the reasons for holding and waving the etrog, the lulav, the hadasim and aravot all together is the symbolism of uniting the Jewish people as a whole, including those who study Torah and do good deeds (the citron), those who only study Torah (the date palm branches), those who only do good deeds (the myrtle), and those who do nothing (the willow branches) but are also included in the community.
We wish you Moadim L'Simcha (Holidays for Happiness) and a joyous Sukkot. We'll be back with more Jewish humor on Wednesday.
