Matthue wrote an interesting piece the other day talking about his search for an etrog But not everyone (myself included) went through the effort to actually purchase a lulav and etrog for Sukkot. Today’s poll question:
Do you own your own set of lulav and etrog?
Pronounced: ETT-rahg, Origin: Hebrew, a citron, or large yellow citrus fruit that is one of four species (the others are willow, myrtle and palm) shaken together as a ritual during the holiday of Sukkot.
Pronounced: LOO-lahv (oo as in boo), Origin: Hebrew, a bundle of branches representing three species — willow, myrtle and palm — which are shaken together with the etrog on Sukkot.
