Lesson Highlights

  • The Lulav and Four Species connect to the seven phases of the Internal Light of Zeir Anpin: Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, Malchut
  • Injecting Light into our DNA and correcting it
  • The importance of injecting consciousness into physical actions
  • The Four Species and the Tetragrammaton: Yud: Myrtle Branches, Hei: Willow Branches, Vav: Palm frond, Hei: Etrog/Citron
  • Myrtle Branches (Hadas) have a numerical value of 69 which connects them to chaim, life
  • The three Myrtle branches establish a connection to Chesed, Gevurah and Tiferet, the Upper Triad of the Shield of David
  • The Willow Branches (Aravot) establish a connection to Netzach and Hod, the Lower Triad of the Shield of David
  • The Lulav establishes a connection to Yesod
  • The Etrog establishes a connection to Malchut
  • The Lulav is held in the right hand, the Etrog is held in the left hand


Lesson Description

Over the years Rav Berg has refered to the holiday of Sukkot as 50th Century technology. Every aspect of the sukkah, the hut that we build to establish our connections, is built according to precise details that allow us to connect to the Light of Mercy during this seven day period. Two of the tools that we use to draw Or d'Chassadim (Light of Mercy) are the Lulav and Etrog, which are also known as the Four Species.

The Lulav is made of myrtle branches, willow branches and a palm frond and the Etrog is a citron. By assembling them with consciousness revealed by the Ari, Rav Isaac Luria, they become a powerful tool connection in the sukkah. Join Rav Berg for this rarely heard advanced lecture from the archives revealing some of the consciousness of the Lulav and Etrog: the Four Species.
