Etrog: How A Chinese Fruit Became a Jewish Symbol - Rabbi Dr. David Moster
The Etrog is one of Judaism’s oldest and most important ritual objects and symbols. In this presentation with dozens of images, we will explore how the fruit made its way from China to Israel, how it changed the holiday of Sukkot, and how it became the only distinctively Jewish symbol during the Roman and Byzantine periods.
