Sukkot: The Swingy Branchy Thing Explained

ROI and Jewlicious Festival alum Sasha Perry and I hung out the the “Shuk Arbat Haminim” today adjacent to the Machaneh Yehudah Market in Jerusalem. Every year, they set up this market to sell lulav’s and etrogs to a very animated crowd. Sasha interviewed Rabbi Shurin from Midreshet Rachel v’Chaya in Jerusalem who explained exactly what was with that swingy branchy thing and what it meant. Me? I took some pics. Enjoy!


And also check out this great interview with Shimon the Etrog vendor by the always lovely and entertaining Simone at Jerusalemite.net.
