After Yosef, his brothers and father built their sukah, they went to buy a lulav and etrog. Yosef is fascinated by its fragrance and can’t wait until the holiday arrives to smell it again. But his father placed the lulav and etrog on the top shelf of the cabinet. This is the start of Yosef’s problems.

THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING PITOM is beautifully illustrated in full color. It’s also very educational, explaining the pitom specifications that make the etrog acceptable for use during sukot.
