Hey Shahar, I just wanted you to know that I received my order (two-for-one Galilean Style sandals) on Monday. [It’s late Wednesday night here].
Hadad Sterling Silver Etrog Box - Simply Elegant Rounded Curves
This smooth rounded silver box for the etrog simply shines! This box will elegantly carry your esrog throughout the Jewish holiday of Sukkot (Tabernacles). The 925 sterling silver box weighs 400 gram. Made in Israel
The Four Species (in Hebrew Arba Minim, or simply 'Lulav and Etrog') are held together and waved every day (other than Shabbat) of the Jewish Festival of Sukkot (Tabernacles, Feast of Booths).
These four species consist of three types of branches and one type of fruit – a citrus fruit very similar to a lemon which is called etrog, or citron. This fruit is the most expensive of the four. It is also the most fragile, since most of the etrogs have a little extension which looks like a little know, called the 'pitam', and is found at the opposite end to the stem. Since, if the pitam falls, the etrog is no longer kosher, and cannot be used for the Sucot ceremonies, it is customary to acquire a box which is used for the protection of the esrog.
This 925 Sterling Silver etrog box by Hadad Bros. of Israel will elegantly protect your etrog Jewish festival of Sukkos, as well as enhancing your silver collection during the year.
This sterling silver box for the etrog is made of totally smooth silver, with almost no embellishment. The tiny rope design on the perimeters of the bottom and the cover, and the scrolled latch and wide carrying handle serve only to highlight the understated simple elegance of unadorned shiny silver. The box balloons out from the base to curve back into the sides of the cover. The cover is securely hinged to the box, and latched on the other side.
Hadad Bros. manufactures this box in Israel. It measures 4.7 inch x 6.7 inch x 5.5 inch (12cm x 17cm x 14cm). As only Jewish artisans were involved in the creation of this etrog box, it does not need to be tovel'ed [Immersed in a ritual mikvah]
