lulav ring project

The lesson of Sukkot is “less talk – more action” … and in that spirit here is how you can make a lulav ring to bind your lulav, willows and myrtle branches (arba minim) or just make a finger ring for a friend or lover….

All Israel is bound one to the other

כל ישראל ערבים זה לזה

Before inserting the Lulav (palm branch) into the holder, remove one palm leave by pulling it down and off the stem.  Using your thumb, gently open the branch.

Pull the two branches apart.  You can now make 2 lulav rings !
