4 types of plant symbols of the holiday SUKKOT
Another oneSukkot important tradition - 4 plant species. These four plants represent the four types of people in the people of Israel.
LULAV - palm branch.
It has taste, but there is no smell in its fruit. It symbolizes those who study the Torah, but do not do good deeds.
ADAS is a myrtle.Myrtle has a smell, but no taste. It symbolizes those who do not teach the Torah, but do good deeds.
ARAVA - willow.There is no smell or taste in it. These are people who do not do good deeds and do not study the Torah. Simple ARABA acquires a symbolic meaning only together with LULAW, ADAS and ETROG.
ETROG - citrus. He has both taste and smell. These people have Torah knowledge and do good deeds.
Sometimes we look more like a palm branch.
When, possessing Knowledge, we do not follow him in life.
Sometimes we like a myrtle.
We do good deeds, but do not study spiritual scripture.
Sometimes we are willows. We live without the Spirit and without good deeds.
And sometimes we, as citrus - etrog, are full of spiritual knowledge and perform good deeds, following it.
