Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood inspect
myrtle branches, date palm fronds, willow branches and etrog citrus
fruits for the Succot holiday, which begins Wednesday at sundown. They
carefully scrutinize specimens of the four species used in the holiday
rituals, weeding out the blemished ones.
