Daf Yomi: Aravos on the Mizbeyach (Succah 45a)

Inspired by a recent passage in Daf Yomi, I took out my Lego® Mizbeyach and a handful of white-clad minifigures for an impromptu photo shoot.

Succah 45a describes how the Kohanim would harvest a large number of very long aravah (willow) branches and lean them against the Mizbeyach during Succos. Each day, the Kohanim would hold their lulavim (palm fronds) and circle around the Mizbeyach accompanied by the sounds of the trumpet (Gemara 43b).

Special thanks to Hallel Newman for the aravah design idea.
