For the first time, the Federation of Synagogues has supervised sets of arba minim (lulav and etrog) for Succot.
The head of the Federation Beth Din, Dayan Yisroel Lichtenstein, travelled to Morocco recently with an inspector to examine etrogim and myrtle leaves.
"I was approached by a religious family called Tidghi," he said. "They live in France although part of the family still lives in Morocco, in Agadia, on the coast, and they are in the business of supplying etrogim."
