A public message from Chestnut Esrogim
A PUBLIC MESSAGE FROM RAV YOSEF GREENFELD, MORA DASRA Bais Medrash D’Chestnut
This year, due to Shmita, Lechatchila we are only selling Esrogei Chutz Laretz from Italy & Morocco.
As the supply of these Esrogim in the entire market is very short, & the demand is extremely high, the pricing & quality of this years Esrogim is more challenging as was in previous years. With the Rovs guidance, the Shuls askonim, as in the past, are doing their utmost to deliver the most Mehudar Esrogim they can get, while keeping the prices low.
For those looking for that perfect, clean Esorg, we are unable to offer such Esrogim this year, as it will be extremely expensive. For thosewho are looking to get a Mehudar Daled Minim set, pre-checked, this service is strongly suggested, especially this Shmita year for those who are not fluent in these Halachos.
The Rov will be personally checking each Esrog & Lulav for the highest standards of kashrus (based on the level requested).
