Preparations for Sukkos in Israel

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
October 2, 2017

An ultra orthodox Jewish man examines a citron, known as an etrog, for imperfections, in the ultra orthodox Jewish neighborhood of Meah Shearim in Jerusalem on October 2, 2017.  The citron is one of the four species used during rituals in the week-long Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Sukkot commemorates the Israelites 40 years of wandering in the desert and a decorated hut or tabernacle is erected outside religious households as a sign of temporary shelter.
