Chapter 2, Mishna 10, Chapter 3, Mishna 1-10 A series of highlights from the days I was traveling, including some beautiful spiritual teachings! How do we “take” the four species of Sukkot (date palm, willow, myrtle and citron) so that we say the blessing over this commandment? How and why do we wave the four species? May we use stolen branches? Who are the guardian angels of nations, and what is their destiny? How and why do we beautify a commandment? Why is a Jew who turns his back on God likened to a mountain willow?
