Rabbi Yaakov Rapoport, Director of Chabad House Lubavitch at Syracuse University, prays with a Lulav bundle as he leads a small congregation of Jewish students during a morning service for Hoshana Rabbah. The bundle is made up of a Lulav (date palm frond), myrtle and willow branches which along with the Etrog (citron fruit) make up the Four Kinds used in Mitzvahs during the holiday of Sukkot. Hoshana Rabbah is the seventh day of Sukkot and is considered the final day of the divine "judgment" in which the fate of the new year is determined.   Photo by James R. Evans ©
