Sukkot, the Hebrew name for Feast of Tabernacles, is the festival where Jews celebrate today the dwelling in booths as their forefathers did in the desert after the Exodus from Egypt. In addition to the booths which are decorated beautifully despite their limited life of seven days, the festival is characterized by the waving of the four species - palm branch (lulav) yellow citron (etrog) myrtle (hadas) and williow twig (arava).
