Throughout Sukkot, Jews in Jerusalem and beyond gather the four species (date palm, myrtle, willow and citron - etrog) and shake them all about in a ritual central to the holiday.


In Jerusalem, the pre-Sukkot buzz reaches a fever pitch at the Shuk Arba Minim, the Four Species Market, which, in the days and nights leading up to the holiday, transforms an area adjacent to the Machane Yehuda Market into a lively bazaar for ritually oriented produce shopping.

This year's bazaar will take place from October 9-11 from 7:30-22:00, and on the holiday eve, October 12, from 7:30-14:00. In addition to the four species, Sukkah decorations will also be for sale.
