Shortage of lulavs looms prior to Succot

The Agriculture and Rural Development Ministry is urging Israeli palm farmers to significantly increase the number of lulavs provided for sale for the holiday of Succot, in order to meet the upcoming demand, after it became clear to the ministry that export of palm fronds from the Sinai would become completely prohibited, a statement from the ministry said on Sunday.

The expected demand of lulavs this season is around 600,000-700,000, and in the face of potential shortage, Agriculture and Rural Development Minister Orit Noked pleaded with her Egyptian counterpart Yousef Farag in early August to release palm fronds for export, according to the ministry.
