Following the High Holidays of Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur comes the celebration of Sukkot (literally meaning huts). Relating back to the times of the ancient Israelites wandering in the desert, this holiday is a time of great joy! Around campus we have a number of these sukkot, temporary huts, erected for the week-long celebration. Come check out the Kraft Center’s very own student-decorated sukkah located on the third floor terrace – it’s open to one and all!
Lulav & Etrog Purchase
The agricultural undertones of the holiday of Sukkot are demonstrated by taking four symbolic species:
- Lulav (לולב) – a ripe, green, closed frond from a date palm tree
- Hadass (הדס) – boughs with leaves from the myrtle tree
- Aravah (ערבה) – branches with leaves from the willow tree
- Etrog (אתרוג) – the fruit of a citron tree
We are offering four different sets – $45, $65, $75 and $95. Sets are priced based on the measure of the etrog’s Jewish legal “beautification”; all sets are perfectly kosher. Each set includes all 4 species.
If you would like to select your own set and are available between 9am and 12pm on Friday, September 17th, please stop by the 2nd floor of the Kraft Center; you will pay the seller directly. If you are unavailable during that time, you can order in advance with the form below and pick up your set on the 3rd floor of the Kraft Center during office hours on Friday or Monday.
