Jew Arrested on Temple Mount for Lulav

reprinted from Arutz 7
10/19/2011, Tishrei 21, 5772

A Jewish worshipper was arrested on the Temple Mount for performing the mitzvah of taking the four species - most commonly symbolized by the most visible component, the lulav (palm frond), at around 15:30 on Wednesday.

The Kotel (Western Wall) is traditionally packed with Jewish worshippers during the holiday season, many of whom ascend the mount to Judaism's holiest site. Wednesday was Hoshana Raba, the final day of Sukkot before Shmini Atzeret, whereon the four species play a critical component of the prayer service.

Under rules set by the Muslim Waqf governing the holy site, Jews are routinely arrested by Israeli police for religious expression.
