The Lowly Willow: Which is the greatest of the ‘Four Kinds’?

A profound look at the paradox of the willow of the Four Kinds that are 'taken' during the festival of Sukkot: On one hand, the willow is the least virtuous of the Four Kinds and the laws governing its validity the least demanding, yet the willow conveys the greatest contribution of them all. (Likutei Sichos vol. 22)
