Pictorial Parade

Israelis commenced preparations for the upcoming holiday of Succot. Here ultra-Orthodox men in Jerusalem examine the Four Minim (species) – the etrog, a citron fruit; the lulav, a frond of a date palm; the hadas, a myrtle bough; and the aravah, a willow branch –  which the Jewish people are commanded to bind together during the holiday.  (Photo by Kobi Richter/TPS)
