Let My Palm Fronds (that's Lulavim) Go

Did you know the U.S. Congress got involved with the shortage of lulavim this year.

Here's the story.

And here's the quotation of the chag:-

"I said, 'Let my palm fronds go,' " Rep. Gary L. Ackerman (D-N.Y.) recounted lightheartedly. "We've been using reason and logic and cajoling and friendly persuasion to get them to agree to this. . . . We're trying to avoid the Egyptians from looking like the grinch that stole Sukkot."
