Agudah Achat (Sephardic Torah Reading)

Depicted in this painting is a large crowd assembled around the Torah during the festival of Succot. The four species are held by the worshipers, whose symbolism we are taught hints at the diversity and unity of Am Ysrael. All participants in the service wear unique Talitot and religious head gear, while listening to the reading of the Torah according to the Sephardic custom, in a celebration of Jewish cultural diversity.
