Nestled in the back of a pickup truck and offering mobile services in the midst of the COVID pandemic to abide health and safety regulations, Harlig has all the necessities to make up a proper ceremony.
Harlig provides Lulav and Etrogs — two of four species of plants that are held together and waved during the holiday of Sukkot. The lulav is a palm branch, which is joined with myrtle and willow branches, and an etrog, a citron fruit. The four species are held and waved during various parts of the synagogue service on Sukkot.
According to rabbinic tradition, the Sukkah are tent-like structures which represent the huts in which the Israelites dwelt during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after escaping from slavery in Egypt. The festival of Sukkot is one of the three pilgrimage festivals of the Jewish year.
