The Heart of the Etrog-The Quest Imprimir

etrogI seek You with all my heart; do not let me stray from Your commands (Psalms 119:10).”


“Even as I (King David) search for You with all my heart, I need Your guidance and blessing of truth, insight and awareness so that Your commandments and Torah will change my heart, and to protect me so I will not go astray in my search (Based on Radak).”

We hold the Etrog and the Lulav to our hearts before each gesture in six directions as an expression of our quest to study Torah and observe the Mitzvot to connect with God, and to ask for His guidance, blessings, and protection, as we search for truth in every direction.
