The holiday of Sukkot (the Festival of Booths) features some celebrations that are unlike other Jewish festivals. In Hebrew the four species are called the “lulav” (the collective name for the bound palm, willow and myrtle) and “etrog” (citron). Their use is based on a very old interpretation of Leviticus 23:40.
